Food Stand Fire 6-12-08

On 6-12-08 at 1439 hours, CCFR responded to a reported fire at a portable food stand on Front Street. Prior to the Fire Department arrival the fire had been extinguished by the operator using spray bottles of water. The fire was caused by grease building up on the cooking appliance and igniting due to the open flames. The operator of the stand was advised to purchase a fire extinguisher and to clean the appliance on a more regular basis. There was no visible damage to the stand and there were no injuries reported.
