Fayette County Department of Fire and Emergency Services responded to Long’s Mobile Home Park, in the 200th block of Rivers Road, for a reported residential structure fire with possible entrapment of two occupants.
On the arrival of first arriving units, there was a small fire located inside the home, and both occupants were assisted out of the structure without injury or medical complaint.
The fire was extinguished quickly with minimal damage or extension. Deputies from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office also responded and assisted fire crews in removing the home’s occupants.
Fayette County Fire and Emergency Services warns residents about the use of space heaters, extension cords, and power strips inside the home. Always plug appliances directly into a wall outlet and keep combustible materials at least 3-feet away from any heat source.
Install smoke detectors on every level of your home, and outside sleeping areas. Test smoke detectors every month. Replace the batteries immediately if the low-battery warning chirp sounds or at least once per year. Replace smoke detectors every 10 years.
