From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — Units of the Birdseye Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a fire Tuesday at the Holly Stevens residence at 311 W. Second St.
Fire Chief David Smith said the 8:55 a.m. fire started when hot grease ignited. The chief said Stevens attempted to get the pan of burning grease outside but dropped it on the floor when she was halfway to the door, burning her hand in the process.
The first arriving firefighters used an extinguisher to put out the flames. Damage was limited to some scorched flooring, according to Smith.
Smith was treated at the scene for her hand burn by Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services.
Firefighters exhausted smoke from the residence and remained on scene until smoke detectors stopped activating.
Two trucks and 12 firefighters were on the scene for 45 minutes.
