Friday 3/10/17 Station 10 and the first alarm assignment were dispatched to Arona Rd. in our first due for a Reported House Fire. Chief 10 arrived to find nothing evident from the front, but the resident reported the cabinets in the kitchen to be on fire. Quint 10 and Rescue 61 arrived quickly as firefighters were preparing for a fundraiser. Crews entered to find fire around the stove and cabinets in the kitchen and extinguished the same. Crews checked for extension and conducted ventilation. Chief 10 released units as they picked up.
The evening proved to be just as busy, firefighters handled another reported electrical fire (good intent), a fire alarm and two weather related incidents. While handling these calls, volunteers also made sure our Fish Fry stayed up and running.
We would like to say thank you to our volunteers for keeping things going on the calls and at the fund raisers, as well as thank you to the mutual companies who assisted us at our incidents.
