TFR Battles Blaze
Thomasville Fire Rescue responded to a house fire at 506 Park Avenue last week. Upon arriving on scene, Firefighters battled a house fire and fortunately no one was injured.
According to Glenn Gaines, the Deputy U.S. Fire Administrator, fires kill more Americans each year than all natural disasters in the United States combined.
“Today’s firefighter work environment is more dangerous than ever with increased heat and fire. The challenge of deploying resources in a timely manner and fire spreading rapidly is exacerbated by the contents of today’s home. These synthetic materials increase combustibility and uncertain flammability behavior. This means significantly less time for occupants to escape fire. It is more important than ever to make sure your smoke detectors are operational," said Fire Chief Chris Bowman.
