01/15/2024 – Shortly after 4pm today the Fire Department was dispatched to a residence on Kingston Ave for a reported house fire. Assistant Chief 503 arrived and confirmed a working fire in the basement with heavy smoke coming from the basement. A 2nd alarm was quickly called bringing mutual aid to backfill the firehouse. Within 20 minutes the fire was knocked down and crews began overhauling. Thank you to our PD, Hawthorne EMS, mutual aid, Fire desk and Ladies Auxiliary for the assistance today.
