January has been a bit more interesting than the past couple months. Had a kitchen fire the other night that I believe was the first fire of the year, same as last year. 2 days ago our wagon was called to company 48's area for the house fire. We arrived to nothing showing but that didn't last long. The officer of the wagon, which arrived first due, discovered a fire in a back bedroom that was started by a small portable heater fan. Had it not been for the resident shutting the bedroom door behind him we would've undoubtedly arrived with fire showing. It doesn't seem like a big deal but it should make you think...you may not always have something evident, and what if conditions were different. What about a possible backdraft? Nothing Showing doesn't always mean there's nothing at all. It happens regularly in fact. Keep your eyes peeled.
