Grease fire heavily damages Ottawa home

Posted by wlpo on September 22, 2013

An Ottawa house is uninhabitable, but the residents and pets are safe after a grease fire heavily damaged a kichen and living room this morning (Sunday). Ottawa Fire Department’s Captain Haywood said his men were at 1517 West Madison in three and half minutes. Just before 11am, firemen removed a kitchen window to allow them to extinguish the fire in a short time. Firemen then focused on “hot spots” and clearing smoke out. The rental house is owned by a Marseilles man. The four residents and pets are okay, though the pets did go to the vet. Haywood said the structure received 30-thousand dollars damge and 15-thousand in contents were destroyed.
