KSCB News – May 23, 2017

At 6:11 am Tuesday, Liberal firefighters were dispatched to 2642 Long Ave. for a reported fire in the bedroom of the residence. Prior to arrival of fire units, Liberal Police officer’s on-scene advised that all residents had evacuated and were accounted for. The homeowner successfully attempted to control the fire to some extent with a garden hose through the bedroom window. Firefighters making entry encountered very little fire which was confined to one room of the home. The fire was declared under control at 6:14 am.

The fire began in the bedroom and spread through the entire room. The remainder of the residence suffered heat and smoke damage. The exact cause of the fire is undetermined at this time; however it appears to be accidental in nature. Three of the occupants of the residence were evaluated at the scene for possible smoke inhalation and one firefighter suffered an injury from a post-fire fall while removing equipment from the home. The fire department responded with a total of 18 personnel, two engines and a medical/rescue unit. Also assisting at the scene was the Liberal Police Department, American Red Cross, Southern Pioneer Electric & Black Hills Energy. All units were fully returned to service at 7:42 am.
