April 15, 2017 Structure fire

On Saturday April 15, 2017 at 7:32 pm CCFR responded to a report of smoke coming out of a building on Seward st. CCFR found active fire at the 200 block of Seward st. Crews entered the business and found the fire in the wall. Fire was knocked down and the wall was checked for fire extension. Additional Crews also checked the second floor for any fire extension and possible occupants. No additional fire or occupants found. Fire was confined to the 1 store and smoke damage to other business in the same building. There were no occupants in the building at the time of the fire and no injuries of the firefighters. Business responsible responded and arrived on scene to take possession of the business. Because of the quick reporting of the smoke, responding crews were able to put the fire out quickly and the sprinkler system had activated to keep the fire small, the fire was confined to the one store of the building and did not spread. The Fire Marshal is currently investigating the fire. He will determine the damage cost and cause of the fire. Please contact the Fire Marshall at 586-5322 for information.
