Despite Heavy Weekend Rain, TFR Extinguishes Late-Night Tuscaloosa House Fire
Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue responded to a late-night fire that left no injuries but heavy damage to a Tuscaloosa home.
Just after 1 a.m. on June 20, there was a report of a structure fire on 4th Place East. Engines 4, 6, 5, Truck 32, Rescue 24, and Battalion 2 responded to the call and arrived at a burning house.
Flames were spreading from the roof and back of the house when crews arrived. According to a Monday morning Facebook post, firefighters were able to extinguish the fire and authorities are currently investigating the cause.
The Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue also advocates for the "EMS Prevention" program, addressing the "overuse of 911 by satisfying unmet social needs."
Followup services to a 911 call are almost always needed, as "EMS Prevention provides these services by "appropriate response through social work."
This investigation is ongoing. Stay connected to the Tuscaloosa Thread for more details as they become available.
