CCFR battles post-barbecue blaze

A batch of not-entirely extinguished charcoal briquettes caused Capital City Fire and Rescue to respond to a residential structure fire Saturday morning, according to a release from CCFR.

CCFR responded to the 1100 block of Timberline Court after receiving a report of a residential structure fire. Upon arriving, firefighters saw light smoke from the second-floor deck of a two-story duplex, the release states. Juneau Police Department Officer Jarrett Mahoney arrived before CCFR, and began battling the fire with a garden hose. CCFR eventually extinguished the fire, then remained at the duplex to ensure the fire had not spread.

Unextinguished charcoal placed in a plastic bucket caused the fire, the release states. CCFR took one of the duplex’s residents to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of minor smoke inhalation. The fire caused an estimated $8,000 in damage.
