MFD quenches stove fire


Friday at 4:53 p.m. Maricopa Fire Department crews responded to reports of a stove fire on the 40,000 block of West Colby Drive.

First arriving crews made entry into a smoke filled house to make sure that all the residents were out and to extinguish the fire.  There were no residents in the house and crews were able to quickly extinguish the fire that was contained to the stove.

Fire crews then cleared all the smoke from the house with specialized fans.  No residents or fire personnel were injured. The house was still in livable condition.

The Maricopa Fire Department would like to remind residents to double check that all stoves, grills, and electrical cooking devices are unplugged or turned off before leaving these items unattended.
