Capital City Fire/Rescue

12-6-2016 Residential Structure Fire Riverside Drive

On Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at approximately 10:45 PM, Capital City Fire Rescue responded to a residential structure fire on Riverside Drive. Upon arrival, fire personnel found a two story, attached home with smoke visible from the roof eaves and windows. Personnel entered the structure and found fire on the first and second floors of the structure. All occupants and pets safely escaped with no injuries reported. the fire marshal's office conducted a fire origin and cause investigation and determined the fire started in the chimney chase and spread to a small air space between the ceiling and roof. The occupants did not have renters insurance and the American Red Cross responded and provided assistance. Capital City Fire Rescue would like to remind homeowners to be sure they have working smoke alarms. Had the occupants not been awake to find this fire the outcome could have been much different.
