Boiler fire 4-22-2017

On Saturday April 22, 2017 at 4:02 pm CCFR responded to the 9100 block of Jerry drive for a boiler malfunction that caused the stack to become red hot and the inside of the boiler to continue to burn with the power and fuel shut off. The residents had evacuated the house prior to our arrival. The fire was confined to the inside of the boiler and stack. The fire was extinguished and the residence was checked for fire and smoke damage. No fire damage but some smoke damage. The boiler is completely out of service and house will not have heat for the night. The homeowners will seek elsewhere to sleep tonight. Estimated $10,000 of fire damage. No injuries occurred on scene. Submitted by Assistant Chief Ed Quinto
