Capital City Fire/Rescue

10-8-2012 - Multi-family Complex Structure Fire Response - 326 4th Street

On Monday, October 8, 2012, at approximately 4:01 AM, Capital City Fire Rescue responded to 326 4th Street for a report of a fire alarm activation and smoke in the building. Engine 11, Truck 12, Medic 6, Engine 21, Engine 41, Rescue 1 and Battalion 1 responded to the Medenhall Tower apartment building. Upon arrival, fire personnel were told that there was heavy smoke visible on the second floor. Personnel investigated and found the fire had started in a single apartment and was confined to that apartment. The cause of the smoke was a rice cooker left unattended. There were no injuries reported and very little damage from the heat or smoke. Residents were allowed back inside of the building approximately 40 minutes later.
