Structure Fire Quickly Extinguished

Firefighters from Ashland Fire & Rescue quickly knocked down a structure fire just before noon today. Neighbors reported smoke and hearing alarms sounding to 911 dispatch and fire crews from Ashland and District #5 responded quickly to the 200 block of Nutley Street above Lithia Park

The fire was located in an upstairs family room and contained to one corner of the room, though smoke damage was extensive in the upstairs and several windows were broken by the heat.

No one was home at the time of the fire, but one resident returned as firefighters were putting it out. There was a dog inside at the time of the fire that was let out by fire crews unharmed. An investigation is ongoing to determine what caused the fire. 

Battalion Chief Lance Menold, the incident commander, said "I'm really pleased with how our firefighters, and especially our newest firefighters, worked quickly and efficiently to get this fire out and prevent further damage to this home."
