Capital City Fire/Rescue

9-16-2014 Apartment Fire - 1617 Geneva Woods

On Tuesday, September 16,2014 at approximately 7:41 AM, Capital City Fire Rescue was dispatched to 1617 Douglas Highway, Geneva Woods Apartment C-2 for an apartment fire. Fire personnel arrived on scene within 5 minutes of the alarm to find a two story apartment full of smoke. The fire was quickly extinguished and a search for occupants was conducted and no occupants were inside at the time of the fire. The apartment sustained approximately $50,000 in damage. Working smoke alarms alerted neighbors to the fire who called 911. The fire marshal's office has conducted a fire origin and cause investgiation and have determined the fire to have started in the kitchen area involving the stove. The tenants did not have any renters insurance. There were no injuries reported. Capital City Fire Rescue reminds everyone to be sure they have working smoke alarms in their home.
