On Tuesday at 3:23 pm they were dispatched to the 500 block of Webster Street for a report of a kitchen fire inside a residence. Firefighter/paramedics were on scene within 3 minutes of receiving the call and confirmed all occupants had evacuated the structure.
Crews used an interior fire attack and placed the fire under control within 5 minutes of arrival. The residence sustained significant smoke and fire damage to the main level. The cause of the fire appears to be cooking related.
