We typically meet people on one of the worst days of their lives. Our mission will always be to protect and serve through Education-Prevention-Preparedness and Response. Today at 2:30 #yourFWFD responded to a residential fire in North FW. When crews arrived they found heavy smoke and fire in the garage and attic of a 2 story home. Crews immediately went to work containing the fire and working to protect the contents inside the home. It took approximately 45 mins and 40 Firefighters to contain the wind driven fire. Unfortunately the home did sustain major damage. Crews remained on scene after the fire was under control to assist the occupants to retrieve as much as possible. From start to finish your Fort Worth Firefighters are there in your time of need. P/C FWFD Glen Ellman

Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to those affected by this tragedy. Working smoke detectors can give you valuable seconds to escape a fire. Check yours today and replace the batteries every 6 months. If the detector is over 10 years old it’s time to replace it.
