Busy Friday afternoon for the Nevada Fire Department

Yesterday afternoon the Nevada Fire Department responded to two structure fires within 45 minutes of each other.

First fire was in the 300 Block of North Perkins was reported as a front porch on fire. Upon arrival fire crews found a small fire just starting on the front porch. A fast response was able to stop the spread and save the house.

At 1430 After just returning to quarters we were called to the 15000 blk of 1375 just north of city limits for an oven that exploded. E212 and Tanker 211 responded with a crew of 5 thanks to off duty personnel still at the station from the first fire. '

Upon arrival flames were showing from a 3 car attached garage. Crews went offensive and were able to knock the fire down containing it to the garage. Thanks to Compton, Milo, and Deerfield for the mutual aid!
