fire

On April 16, 2019 at approximately 11:45 a.m. the Longview Fire Department responded to 1708 Oden St. for a reported residential structure fire.  Crews arrived to find light smoke coming from the residence.  Upon investigation it was determined that there had been a fire in kitchen that had resulted from a pan of grease left on the stove.  The resident stated she had put the pan of grease on the stove to heat up and had forgotten about it.  The fire damage was confined to the kitchen only.  There were two people home at the time of the fire with no reported injuries.  The occupants are being assisted by the American Red Cross.


The Longview Fire Department would like to remind everyone that unattended cooking remains the number one cause of residential fires in the United States.
