Crews were on scene for a fire on Brackett Avenue.
The Eau Claire Fire Department responded to a structure fire on the city’s East side this morning. On arrival, Truck 5 and Medic 5 found smoke showing from the rear and one side of the home. The firefighters immediately entered the structure and found fire in the kitchen and adjacent hallways. The fire was extinguished while additional crews conducted a search to assure no occupants were inside. At the same time, fire crews ventilated smoke from the home and checked for fire extension.
It was later learned that one occupant and a dog evacuated the home just prior to the fire departments arrival. No injuries were reported at the time of this release.
