A neighborhood house fire displaced several people Monday night.
Anchorage Fire Department dispatchers received a 911 call reporting smoke and flames at a home on the 3300 block of Peterkin Avenue at 9:12 p.m. August 13, and crews arrived at the scene four minutes later, according to AFD Assistant Chief Erich Scheunemann.
Thirteen apparatus, command and support units responded to the call, and the fire was brought under control by 9:25 p.m.
There were no reported injuries. The Red Cross was requested to help two of the home’s occupants, Scheunemann said.
The fire remains under investigation, according to AFD.
The fire was under control within 13 minutes of the 911 call? Wow! Let’s hear it for our 911 operators and fire department! It could have been so much worse…
