09/July/2022 - Structure Fire - "B" Shift

Incident # 22-05289 - A singlewide mobile home was damaged in an evening structure fire Saturday 10-July at 20:09. The incident occurred at 24576 Augusta Hwy in the Maple Cane Community. A neighbor saw the fire in a window on the east side of the building and began spraying water on the fire from a garden hose. This helped stop the spread of the fire. The fire appears to have started in a window air conditioning unit and spread to the room. Firefighters arrived to find smoke coming from the residence. Crews deployed one 1-3.4 handline and finished extinguishing the fire which was mostly confined to a bedroom. The remainder of the home received smoke and heat damage. The bedroom received substantial fire damage. No one was home at the time of the fire. Fire units were on the scene for approximately one hour. 

Engine 9, Engine 36, Tender 9, Tender 19, Tender 27, Medic 9, Medic 19, Battalion 1, Car 103 and Car 112 responded. Captain Robert Gregory served as Incident Commander.
