Working Basement Fire in the 1900 Blk of Vermont Ave.
Engine Company No. 33 responded first due to this working basement fire this afternoon, in the 1900 block of Vermont Avenue. Upon arrival, the Engine from Kentland reported a one-story, detached, wood-frame, single family home and fire showing from the basement level. The crew stretched their attack line down the “bravo” side of the home (as the OIC performed his “360”) to the basement entrance in rear and entered the home to extinguish the fire. Crews reported negative findings on the searches and the fire was contained within 15 minutes.
