Smoke Detectors Save Family After Early Morning Fire
SPRING HILL – An early morning fire nearly destroys a home on Trollman Street, but officials say smoke detectors prevented injury and further damage to the structure.
According to Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Carroll, just after midnight this morning, Fire Rescue responded to 14178 Trollman Street after reports of a structure fire at that location.
First units arrived on scene within 5 minutes and reported a heavily involved garage fire in a single-family dwelling. While fire crews prepared for a rapid interior attack on the fire, they were notified that all occupants, including the owner’s dog, had evacuated safely and without incurring any injuries.
Crews quickly brought the fire under control, which was beginning to spread into the main living area of the home. Although there was extensive smoke damage to the interior of the house, all structural damage was confined to the garage, due to the quick response and proper tactics utilized at the fire scene.
The homeowners told officials that properly functioning smoke alarms alerted them to the fire and gave them ample time to escape the residence without injury.
