District Fire Chief Keith Burket
Time: 03:48 a.m.
This is District Four-Fire Chief Keith Burkert reporting a structure fire in the Bond Hill section of Cincinnati. Firefighters responded to 6971 Glenmeadow Lane at 3:48 AM on 1/10/02.
Upon arrival they found fire coming out the front first floor windows of a two-story occupied townhouse style apartment. Two of the three occupants jumped from the second floor bedroom window while the third fought his way down the steps and out the rear door. One of the jumpers, a 17-year-old male, broke out a second floor window and was transported to Childrens Hospital for cuts to both hands and arms. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire containing it to the first floor.
Damage is estimated at $5000 and the cause is under investigation.

We offer pager coverage from Bangor, Maine to Washington DC (our corridor coverage system), our New England States Regional System and now our NEW Nationwide System for the fire buff who travels around the country. Incident coverage includes Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont.
We page Working Fires and greater, Motor Vehicle Accidents using Jaws, MCI, or Medflight Helicopter. Police Incidents such as Shootings, stabbings, car chases, etc. and Major NEWS incidents.
We have a National Group for multiple alarms that we get from our affiliates across the country.
We have several groups to choose from and all groups have the option to be turned off. We also use a state of the art FLEX system which allows us to page 240 characters.
A feature for those outside our pager service area allows us to page our incidents to your personal alphanumeric pager or to your digital cell phone.
We also offer E-mail of our incidents to your E-mail address or E-mail enabled Wireless device.
For existing Fire Paging groups we have the TAC9 USA Computer for multiple alarm fires. A Fire Paging group sends one page to this computer, either by SNPP, WCTP, SMTP (E-mail), or TAP (dial up) and the system sends that multiple alarm fire to all your reciprocal groups. That simple !
Call us for details or check us out on the web.
