While out at National Night Out parties when Missouri City Firefighters received a call for a structure fire on Venosa Ct (3800 BLK). Our team quickly responded and, thanks to their swift and assertive tactics, brought the attic fire quickly under control. Kudos to our dedicated crews!
Our hearts go out to the affected family, but we're relieved to report no injuries to citizens or firefighters. The Fire Marshal's Office is determining the cause of the fire.
Big thanks to our mutual aid partners for their assistance: Stafford Fire Department, Fort Bend ESD #7, and Fort Bend County EMS. 🤝🙌

"🚒 Earlier today, your C shift firefighters quickly responded to a reported STRUCTURE FIRE in 3000 BLK of Naples Point LN. Crews arrived on location and found a kitchen fire that had extended into the attic. Your Firefighters were able to mitigate the call and bring the fire under control within 20 minutes of the call. We are happy to report there were no reported injuries at the location and all occupants were able to get out prior to our arrival. Great job by all on scene 👩🚒👨🚒 "

Great job by all the members of the our Apparatus Committee on the design and functionality of this new truck!
Thank you to our Mayor and Council for their continued support and investment in Missouri Fire & Rescue Services.

🚨 Your Missouri City Firefighters responded earlier to a serious incident on HWY 6. A three-vehicle accident occurred in the 9600 BLK. Great job by all units that responded and by our partners at Fort Bend County EMS and Missouri City Police Department .
On this day we honor all first responders and civilians who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. They will never be forgotten.
Your Missouri City Firefighters had another busy night with a residential structure fire that occurred in the early morning hours this morning in the 12000 block of Riva Ridge Lane. Our first unit arrived to find a single-story home with heavy fire, extending towards a neighboring property with reports of a potential victim still inside of the home.
We're relieved to report that the missing family member was found outside and uninjured several minutes later. Despite the challenging conditions, your firefighters were successful in limiting the damage to the neighboring residence and preventing further spread.
We express our deepest sympathies to the families impacted. Losing a home is devastating, and we are thankful there was no loss of life. The cause of the fire is under active investigation by the Fire Marshal’s Division.
We're immensely grateful for the tireless efforts of all
of our firefighters that responded including The Stafford Fire Department and The Houston Fire Department. The scene was released to the homeowner and all units have returned to service. Great work C shift!
Update: Firefighters brought the fire under control after going defensive on this heavily involved structure. We are pleased to report that there were no civilian or firefighter injuries. We appreciate the assistance on scene from Stafford Fire Department, Sugar Land Fire-EMS and Fort Bend Cunty EMS. Thank you Chief DiCamillo for the excellent Command. Special thanks to Missouri City Police Department for flying thier new drone with thermal
Imaging built in. Together we Excel
Trapped dog rescued!
A small dog found himself in a precarious situation when he was stuck in mud deep inside a 100 foot section of underground drainage pipe over the weekend. Firefighters from Missouri City Fire Station 1 along with the help from our Animal Control, Public Works and staff from Quail Valley Municipal Utility District (QVMUD) worked overnight and back this morning to help free the small dog. Everyone involved worked together to come up with extraordinary ideas to try to rescue the dog including using containment traps, pulling a bucket on a rope to snag the dog and even using a remote control vehicle equipped with a camera. In the end the team cleaned, flushed and vacuumed debris from the pipe which allowed a QVMUD employee to make is way through the pipe rescuing the small dog. The dog received immediate veterinary care from the Animal Control Officer on scene and was handed over to the owner exhausted, alive and very dirty.
A tremendous team effort by all!
Together we Excel!
An unfortunate event but luckily we have some of the greatest first responders in the state in our county. Great work by our partners at Fort Bend County EMS and Rosenberg FD! Hope all those affected have a quick and speedy recovery !
We had a Blast! Great job Missouri City Parks & Recreation for coordinating and allowing us to be a part of such a great program! A big thank you to all of our Firefighters and our Missouri City Police Officers that participated.
