CINCINNATI FIRE DEPARTMENT
MEDIA RELEASE
District 3

Media Contact:
District Fire Chief Glen Coleman
Date: 01/11/02
Time: 07:14 p.m.

Good evening.

This is Cincinnati Fire District 3 Chief Glenn Coleman reporting on a one-alarm fire that occurred this evening in the Mt. Airy area of Cincinnati.

Fire companies were dispatched at 7:14 PM to 4862 Hawaiian Terrace for a structure fire. Firefighters upon arrival found fire and smoke showing from the second floor of this three-story brick townhouse. Companies made a quick attack on this fire and kept it confined to the kitchen area on the second floor with smoke damage to the top floor. Working smoke detectors alerted residents of the building to escape and call 911.

Occupants that were at home at the time of the fire escaped safely. Grease left cooking on the stove unattended caused fire. One adult and three children were displaced and are staying with friends. Building loss is estimated at $10,000. There are no injuries to firefighters or occupants.

Firefighters were on the scene about 11/2 hours. 3 engines, 2 ladder trucks, and rescue unit were used to battle this fire. About 25 firefighters total.

For additional information contact District 3 Chief Glenn Coleman at 352-2333.

Time: 03:00 p.m.

Good afternoon,

This is Cincinnati Fire District Chief Paul Weber reporting on a one-alarm fire which occurred at 3:00 today at the Specialty Envelope Company, 4890 Spring Grove Avenue in Winton Place.

Fire companies were dispatched for a water flow alarm and upon arrival found heavy smoke from the first floor. The sprinkler system confined the fire until firefighters located and extinguished the fire.

Firefighters were on the scene for 1 1/2 hours and the loss is estimated at $20,000. There were no injuries.

For additional information contact DC Paul Weber at 352-2333. Thank you.

CINCINNATI FIRE DEPARTMENT
MEDIA RELEASE
District 1

Media Contact:
District Fire Chief Stephen Phillips
District Fire Chief Anson Turley
Date: 01/12/02
Time: 05:00 p.m.

Good evening this is District Fire Chief Anson Turley reporting on a fire which took place at approx. 5:00 PM this evening in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Walnut Hills. The fire occurred at 2352 Kenton St. in a two-story frame dwelling with an attic. When fire crews arrived they were met with heavy smoke and fire in the abandoned unoccupied structure.

It took 25 firefighters approximately 15 minutes to bring the fire under control. Firefighters had to be cautious and fight the fire from the exterior briefly until and interior attack could be made. Fires of this type are particularly dangerous to firefighters. The building had been abandoned sometime before the fire.

Weather, time and neglect made the structure unstable even before it began to burn. Thankfully no injuries occurred to either firefighters or civilians. We in the force have a saying. Risk a lot to save a life; risk a little to save property; risk nothing to save what is already lost. This building was lost before the fire occurred.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage is set at $10,000. For questions contact District One Fire Chief Steve Phillips at 352-2311.

LOS ANGELES, CA:
GREATER ALARM STRUCTURE FIRE:

On Saturday, January 12, 2002 at 1235 Hours (12:35 PM PST), eleven Companies of Los Angeles Firefighters, three LAFD Rescue Ambulances and two Battalion Officer Command Teams, all under the direction of Assistant Chief Terry Manning responded to a Greater Alarm Structure Fire at 425 South Catalina Street in the Koreatown area of Los Angeles. The first Company to arrive on scene reported heavy smoke showing to the rear of a 35,000 square-foot three-story center hallway apartment building with a central courtyard. Firefighters using handlines mounted a brisk assault on the flames, which had taken hold of an apartment and balcony on the second floor of the “O”-shaped structure, threatening the apartment directly above. With tenacious and well-coordinated efforts on two floors, the fire was extinguished in just 18 minutes. There were no injuries. Most heavily damaged by the blaze was the second-floor apartment of origin in the western portion of the 42-unit building, with lesser damage to a third-floor unit above. Monetary loss is preliminarily estimated at $30,000 ($20,000 structure & $10,000 contents). As a result of the fire, a total of nine adults and five children from two families were referred to the American Red Cross for placement assistance. The cause of this noontime blaze is categorized as suspicious.

*** FireNet Group Of The Day: ***

CFN, Columbia Fire Net, is a product of the Columbia, Missouri Fire Department. It was established to provide information via pagers to Chief Officers, Rescue and HazMat Team members and eventually to any interested CFD member. The pagers are provided at no cost to CFD members. With 4 pin options available, members could select any 2 additional types of pages. Obviously their individual pin, then a CFD all call pin and their choice of 2 more. About 2 dozen elected to receive CFN as one of their options. As of this writing there are 4 who are authorized to send out national pages. National paging will remain a very closely held authority. Since we are new, we have a rather steep learning curve. As Fire Chief, Wm. Markgraf is the nominal head of the system. The other 3 "national dispatchers" are employees of the CFD.
