GOOD WORK, MUSKEGON HEIGHTS FIRE DEPT., MUSKEGON FIRE DEPT. FOR BACK UP, TEAM WORKS, MAKE ANYTHING POSSIBLE 👏👏👏

This morning at 9:25 am, Muskegon Heights Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire in the 2500 block of Baker Street.

Arriving just 3 minutes after being dispatched, our crew of three firefighters found heavy smoke from the front door and flames out a bedroom window. The first Muskegon Heights crew confirmed everyone was out of the home safely and began an exterior fire attack. We immediately called for an Engine and manpower from Muskegon Fire Department. We also requested Canteen, Pro-Med, and utilities. Our crew initially struggled to battle the blaze while waiting on additional resources. Muskegon Fire Department crews arrived and established a water supply and we worked together to extinguish the fire. The American Red Cross was called to the scene to help the displaced occupants. There were no injuries to the fire crews or the occupants. A special thanks to Muskegon Fire Department, Pro-Med, Canteen 450, and both Utilities for their help at the scene this morning.

The fire is believed to be smoking-related.
