On Saturday, July 7th 2018 at 1631 Hours, units from KVFD and other stations were dispatched for a shed fire in the area of Randolph Road and Galena Road.
While the initial dispatched units were en route, the incident was upgraded to a house fire assignment. PE721 arrived on scene and reported fire showing from a single family home.
Chief 705 arrived on scene shortly thereafter and assumed command. There was a report of people trapped in the basement and fire extending to the house next door. Command requested the Rapid Intervention Dispatch and a Second Alarm.
The shed fire extended to the carport and into the house, then to a wooden fence, and the neighboring house. The fire was quickly extinguished. There were no injuries, and all occupants got out safely.
