WFR responds to apartment fire

WFR responded to an apartment fire at 623 6th St NE. Upon arrival all occupants had evacuated the building, and there was smoke coming out of the upstairs apartment window. WFR was able to quickly extinguish the fire. The fire started due to cooking that was left unattended. There were no injuries, but there was some considerable damage to the apartment. WFR would like to remind the public not to leave cooking oil unattended on the stove. However, if cooking oil should start on fire do not use water in an attempt to extinguish the fire; doing so will only spread the fire and increase chance for injuries. If it can be done safely, simply turn off the stove and place a cover over the top of the container and leave it there until it cools. If this cannot be done safely, and a proper fire extinguisher is not available, ensure that everyone is out of the building and call 911.
