irefighters from Hall 1 responded to the first structure fire of the New Year at 00: 28 hours on January 1, 2013.

 

Approximately 20 firefighters from Halls 1 and 4 responded to a single story abandoned house on fire in the 46000 block of Bole Ave.

Firefighters arrived to heavy smoke showing and forced their way into the house and extinguished the fire in the living room. The sparsely furnished house situated between two apartment buildings was not inhabited and the fire damage was confined to the interior of the home.
