Bathroom Fire In Multi Story Apartment Building

Just before 7:30am this morning Penfield Volunteer Firefighters were called to the Oakbriar Apartments off of Willow Pond Way for the report of smoke in the structure.  2nd Captain 3C57 was the first arriving fire officer and was notified by a Sherriff’s Deputy already on scene of a bathroom fire. The crew from the first arriving engine company made entry to find an apartment fully charged with smoke and a fire in the bathroom. The fire was quickly extinguished and the area was checked for extension with no extension found. Smoke was removed from apartments on several floors and residents were allowed to return to their apartments with the exception of the apartment where the fire originated. Fairport responded with one Engine as the RIC Team.

Fire on the exterior of the house 9/6/15

Sunday morning just after 6am Penfield Volunteers received an alarm for the report of a room on fire on Brauston Drive.  First arriving chiefs found a three seasons room with a fire on the exterior of the home.  Firefighters on the first arriving engine put out the remaining hot spots and there was extensive overhaul to be done but luckily most damage was contained to the outside of the home.
The fire was discovered by the homeowner when he woke up early in the morning.  The cause was accidental when a towel which caught on fire in the kitchen earlier that evening was thrown out the backyard which in turn set the mulch on fire which spread to the house overnight (it appears it took the fire the entire night to creep back to the structure).

This is the second close call for Penfield residents and volunteer firefighters as earlier this year in June almost same thing happened at the Mountain Lane apartments. In that case a blanket caught fire inside an apartment and was then taken outside to a balcony thought to be extinguished but hours later rekindled almost setting the structure on fire.

Mobile Home Fire

8:56 this morning a lone cell phone 911 call came in alerting volunteer firefighters of  a Mobile Home Fire on Arbor Drive. The 2nd assistant chief 3c37 was first on location reporting a working fire with fire showing in the front corner of the mobile home.  First in apparatus Engine 372 directed by the 2nd assistant chief 3c37 picked up a hydrant and laid in a water supply to the scene then stretched a line to the door.  Crews quickly entered and knocked down a deep seated kitchen fire and encountered heavy smoke and heat through out the structure.  While one crew battled the fire (Engine 372) another crew (Rescue 378) did a search of the home for any possible victims.  Although no human victims were found a pet cat was located in a rear bedroom which had unfortunately succumb to the smoky conditions.  Crews were out for about 2 hours total.  Brighton and East Rochester FD's assisted with man-power to the scene.
