On February 28th SKFR responded to a structure fire in an apartment complex. The outcome was a good reminder for everyone to make sure their smoke alarms are working.

The occupant of the home was bathing his two small children when the alarm sounded. Upon investigation he found heavy smoke coming from the children’s bedroom. He evacuated the apartment and took the children to the neighbors and asked them to call 911. He then went back to the apartment with an extinguisher and extinguished the fire.

Upon investigation it was determined that the fire was started when a stuffed toy or pillow was left on a baseboard heater. The toy then caught fire, charring the wall and the dresser nearby. The fire damage was contained to the bedroom, with minimal smoke damage in the rest of the unit.

Because of a working alarm, no one was injured and the fire was quickly extinguished. Please take a minute to make sure your smoke alarms are working properly.
