Stove Fire

While Engine 1-1 was ready to clear the MVA, the alarm was sounded for an appliance fire at 109 Cheree Drive. Ambulance 1-8 arrived on the scene to find a 1 1/2 story duplex with normal conditions from the exterior. Upon investigation it was found that a small fire was in the stove and was extinguished. Command (Captain 1-3) held Engine 1-1, Tower 1, and the Ambulance to remove the appliance and smoke removal. Units cleared in under 20 minutes.
