Fire at 1614 Chapman Avenue

The Roanoke Fire-EMS Department responded to a residential structure fire on June 12, 2007 at 1614 Chapman Ave.

The call was received through the 9-1-1 Center at approximately 8:51 p.m. The response of three Engines, two Ladder trucks, one Medic Unit, the EMS Captain, a Battalion Chief, and the Investigation Unit for a total of 21 personnel responded to the scene.

When crews arrived they found smoke coming from the rear of the structure and they heard a smoke alarm sounding. They quickly gained entrance and found a fire in an upstairs bedroom. Crews quickly extinguished the fire and checked for anyone trapped inside. The search was ruled all clear.

This was a vacant home and there was no one inside when the fire started. There were no injuries to Fire-EMS crews or civilians.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
