3-10-2017 Residential Structure Fire Switzer

On Friday, March 10, 2017, at approximately 6:49 PM, Capital City Fire Rescue was dispatched to a residential structure fire in Switzer mobile park. Upon arrival, fire personnel found a mobile home engulfed in flames. The occupants were home at the time of the fire and escaped without any injuries. The fire was quickly extinguished. A fire origin and cause investigation was conducted and it was determined that the cause of the fire was due to the use of a charcoal barbecue grill on a combustible wood deck. The American Red Cross responded and is providing assistance to the family. Capital City Fire Rescue would like to remind residents to be sure their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors have fresh batteries and to be sure and check that they work. With Daylight Savings, change your clocks and change your batteries in all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Submitted by: Fire Marshal Daniel Jager.
