Capital City Fire/Rescue

UPDATE: Cascade St. Fire Investigation

The Capital City Fire Rescue Fire Marshal's Office conducted a fire origin and cause investigation for a residential structure fire that occurred on Cascade Street on July 7, 2016. The cause for this fire is unintentional and the most likely heat source was identified as discarded smoking materials in a combustible location. The fire started on the exterior of the structure and moved into the residence. There was significant smoke and heat damage to the residence with approximately $200,000 in damage. The structure was insured and there were no injuries reported. CCFR would like to remind owners to be sure they have working smoke alarms in their homes and at least one portable fire extinguisher in case you have a fire. Submitted by: Fire Marshal Daniel Jager
