Date: 12/22/01
Time: 10:36 a.m.

This is District Four-Fire Chief Keith Burkert reporting a two-alarm structure fire that occurred at 10:36 am on Saturday, 12/22/01 in the Bond Hill section of the city.

Upon arrival at 5801 Rhode Island Avenue, firefighters encountered heavy fire on the second floor of a two story, occupied, 2-family dwelling.

Initial reports indicated children trapped on the 2nd floor. First arriving fire companies due to the potential life hazard requested the second alarm.

A rapid attack brought the fire under control quickly and the search for occupants was negative.
A total of 57 firefighters were on the scene several hours. There were no injuries, loss is estimated at $30,000 and the cause is under investigation.

Questions may be directed to DC Sedam at 352-2344.
