Fire consumes deck, hot tub

structurefireon21stThe residents of a home located in the 400 block of 21st Street were quite fortunate Tuesday afternoon when a deck and old hot tub behind their house caught on fire, as well as a shed. As luck would have it, a few firemen were on the north side of town when the fire started and made it to the fire just as the 9-1-1 call went out.
Due to the quick response from firemen, the fire was contained before it spread to the house just a few feet away. The people renting the house were away when the fire started, but one of the residents came back to find the house swarmed with firefighters and local law enforcement personnel.
The young lady renting the home stated that she and her boyfriend had a fire in a pit in the backyard a couple of days ago, and firefighters think that the wind stirred up hot ash and coals, blowing them into an unused, old hot tub and decking that surrounds it. A nearby storage shed also burned.
Fire Chief Rick Goodney said that once the fire got into the fiberglass hot tub, it began to produce copious amounts of black smoke that was quite visible in that area. Since the hot tub is no longer used, the decking surrounding it was very dry, lending itself easily to fire.
Firefighters had the fire knocked down in about 10 minutes and only a small portion of the siding on the home was burned by the flames.
Goodney said that citizens using fire pits or barbeque pits should be especially careful to put the fires out well.
“Things are drying out, and we’re starting to see a bit of a wildfire season emerging,” he said.
