The Columbus Fire Department encountered a taxing situation Saturday morning as all six stations responded to calls within a 30-minute period.
The first was a possible house fire at 10:09 a.m. at 3051 Beech Drive. The homeowner believed there was a fire in the attic.
Firefighters encountered minimal smoke resulting from a short in an electrical box, which was covered by insulation.
Stations 2, 3 and 4 responded. At 10:14 a.m., Station 3 was redirected to Long John Silver’s, 2965 N. National Road, because of a grease fire reported there.
Station 1 also responded to the grease fire, which employees somewhat contained with an extinguisher. Minimal damage occurred, acting Battalion Chief Tim Hughes said.
At 10:20 a.m., Stations 5 and 6, from Walesboro and West Hill Shopping Center areas, were dispatched to Sirloin Stockade, 3114 N. National Road, on a report of an unconscious person.
Don't settle for a preview.
