Big response to Christine Avenue fire

Smoke billowed from windows, but no flames could be seen when fire fighters arrived at a house fire Tuesday afternoon near Andreanoff Drive, just past fire station five.

According to Capital City Fire and Rescue, no one was at home at the time of the fire at 17421 Christine Avenue.

Assistant Chief Brian Long describes the response:

“Two fire engines, one ladder truck, one medic unit, one squad unit and several command support vehicles responded to the scene with a total of 18 personnel.”

He says firefighters found the seat of the fire and knock it down quickly.

The fire was under control about 25 minutes after they arrived, and declared completely out about an hour later.

The structure is described as a manufactured home and Long made no damage estimate.  The cause of the fire is under investigation,
