By Lieutenant Bret Baker
May 16, 2017

Just before 2100 Stations 51, 53 (Fame Fire Company) and 55 (Good Fellowship Ambulance) were dispatched to the 200 block of North Everhart Street for an inside odor investigation. The caller reported an odor of something burning possibly from a vacant apartment. Engine 51-2 & Ladder 53 arrived to find a small smoldering fire inside the vacant apartment. Fire was extinguished and companies returned available.

Thanks to the quick action by the caller a potentially major fire was averted. If you see or smell something that seems abnormal never hesitate to contact 911.
