Kitchen Fire on Cotton Street
Mon. May 18th 2020

12:18 Hours/ 1017 Cotton Street/ Box 602/ A Platoon-

Companies were dispatched for reports of smoke coming from a dwelling. E1 arrived on scene to find a 2 story end of row, with smoke showing. Crews advanced a handline into the structure where they found fire throughout the kitchen. It appeared the fire may have extended into the second floor so second line was stretched to the floor above. The fire was knocked down and crews opened up to check for fire extension. Primary and secondary searches were negative. The fire was placed under control with overhaul at 12:34. OFM was called to the scene to investigate. 

Units Assigned: E1, E5, E3, TW1, L1, R1, E9, C3, C8, M4
