06-27-17 Apartment Fire Leaves Family Homeless

Captain David Brooks with Engine 4 said smoke and flames were shooting out a second story window when the first firefighters arrived on the scene. As additional firefighters began to arrive, some firefighters took in hand-held hoselines to make an interior attack, while others got on the roof to cut ventilation holes and to gain access to the fire in the attic. The firefighters got the fire out in roughly 20 minutes. Captain Brooks said two of the apartment units had substantial fire damage, while two others had relatively minor damage. At least two of the units were vacant.

The fire displaces a mother and her three children. Volunteers with the American Red Cross were called in to provide assistance to the victims. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
