SCRAP FIRE ON STAGE AVE

At approximately 12:39 p.m. on Monday, August 9, the Painesville City Fire Department received a call for a possible car fire at Painesville Recycling, located at 83 Stage Avenue. PCFD units arrived four minutes later to find a large dumpster and a pile of scrap car parts on fire.

The active fire was generating a large amount of black smoke, which could be seen from some distance away from the scene. PCFD units attacked the fire using water and firefighting foam. The fire in the dumpster proved more difficult to put out due to the large amount of packed scrap inside.

PCFD received mutual aid from the Fairport Harbor Fire Department. The fire was completely extinguished without any monetary loss and no injuries to civilians or firefighters. The fire has been ruled accidental with an undetermined cause.

Fairport Harbor Fire Department’s flag has been delivered! Chief Lloyd was fantastic in giving me a personal tour of the fire house (it’s also the village hall, police, and fire station). It was one of the original schools within the town, built around 1870’s! They also have the only working fire pole within the county too. (No I did not slide down it).

Such a cool experience and an honor to donate the flag to them.

We recently purchased a second Lucas chest compression device. This device is used during cardiac arrests to perform high-quality, continuous chest compressions. This device increases a patient's chance of survival. With this addition, both the front line and back-up ambulance are equipped with a Lucas. We would like to thank Mayor Manross, Administrator Cossick, Fiscal Officer Paquette, and the Village Council members for making this possible.

Thank you so much for coming to my sister's condo yesterday and making sure her smoke detectors were working and installing her lock box!!
We will have a trick or treat set up in our garage for the trick or treaters @441 independence in Fairport so y'all bring y'all's little ones by for treat bags
My family & I were wondering about the fire that broke out on Mon., Aug. 26th. We were there for my brother's memorial & were down on the beach when we saw the smoke & heard the sirens. I hope there was no loss of life! Prayers for whomever was affected.
