Duplex fire on North "K" Street

Incident Date:  3/24/15
Issuing Officer:  Joe Meinecke
Incident Location:  616 N “K” St
Incident Type:  Duplex Fire

Narrative:  At 9:09 am firefighters from stations 1, 2, 4, 7, 9, 12, 13, 16, and 17 responded to a reported structure fire.

The first arriving company found flames and heavy smoke showing from the back of the approximately 3,000 square foot two-story duplex. Crews protected near-by exposures and battled the fire that raced up the interior walls (balloon type construction) into the attic space for over an hour before bringing it under control.

No occupants were home at the time of the fire and the Red Cross was requested to provide relocation assistance to four of the six adults displaced from the incident.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
