Structure Fire

 An automatic fire alarm alerted firefighters to a local business on Penfield Road at 20 minutes after 6 this morning. The fire company chief pulled in with nothing showing from the building at first however he said as he parked his chief's vehicle and stepped out he could smell that infamous burning plastic smell that accompanies a fire. Very concerned he did a quick 360 of the building looking for anything obvious and as he rounded the back side he said that thick black oily smoke started to come out of a wall vent. With an obvious fire in progress he radioed the fire dispatcher which brought an additional engine from Fairport to the scene and an engine from Brighton to Penfield Station 1 for a fill in.
Penfield crews contained the fire to a second floor lab and kept it from spreading however there was smoke, heat, and water damage to the lab plus smoke damage throughout the second floor. No one was injured and crews were out for 2.5 hours with the incident.

Active Day for volunteers

Volunteers were kept busy today for several alarms -
At 11:05 the report of a kitchen fire at a local restaurant in the four corners came in. Arriving firefighters found a fire in the kitchen that had spread up the exhaust ductwork to the roof. Crews pulled two handlines and worked from both the kitchen and roof area to stop the fire from spreading further.
While crews worked this incident another alarm sounded for the report of wires down on Country Lane (12:28) which was handled by a mutual aid company that was standing by in our quarters.
As crews began picking up from the restaurant incident a third alarm came in for the report of a house fire on Tree Brook Dr (12:53) which brought the mutual aid fill-in companies plus the available Penfield apparatus that had cleared from the restaurant incident to that scene. Crews said they found a mulch fire that had spread to the siding on a home. Crews wet the area and removed the burned siding to check for extension.
