The CAFD responded an electrical fire at 1306 Jean Marie Street at 17:47 Sunday evening. Upon arrival Battalion 4 found heavy smoke mixed with the rain and fog throughout the neighborhood, and requested a full structural fire response from Stations 2 and 3.
Units found heavy fire in the attic space of a single family residential home with all occupants safely out of the building. Interior attack crews pulled the ceiling in the main floor bathroom and found heavy fire with structural involvement above them, with the roof structure showing signs of failure. Multiple handlines were deployed and the roof was laddered and ventilated to gain access to the fire in the attic space.
Crews were able to contain the fire to the attic space and conducted salvage operations to limit damage within the residence to the original bathroom. There were no injuries, and Engines 1, 2, 31, Tower 1, Medic 9, Battalions 2, 3, Chief 1, and Safety operated on scene. With the majority of District resources committed, additional staff from the CAFD and Carlton Fire Department provided stand-by coverage in case of additional incidents. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
