THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Fire Rescue Platoon Chief John Russak reports that at approximately 22:15 on Wednesday night, TBFR responded to a structural fire on Albany St. The first arriving unit reported heavy black smoke and flame coming from the home. A second alarm was called in.
The initial officer on the scene went with an offensive transitional attack, which knocked down the fire so another crew could make entry into the basement where the fire had originated and completed putting out the fire.
Fortunately, Russak reports, all of the people in the home were alerted to the fire by their smoke alarms and had evacuated the home.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
