Busy Saturday night for the crews of Seneca Hose.

Crews handled several calls including a vehicle roll over, 3 separate commercial fire alarms and a working kitchen fire.

Crews responded to a reported kitchen fire, upon arrival crews stretched one hand line ensuring the fire was out and completed overhaul.

The true shout out goes to one of the occupants of the home who recognized the urgency of the situation unfolding and woke up and evacuated the remaining two occupants from the home before calling for help.

We can not stress the importance of working home smoke detectors. The situation today could have ended much differently if it wasn’t for a smoke detector that alerted occupants in the home.

Thank you greatly to our mutual aid partners.
