MILFORD – A busy afternoon for Eddington firefighters Thursday while they supplied mutual aid for the Milford Fire Department.
Firefighters in Milford had to take the night off for a funeral and Eddington firefighters responded to two calls within the first hour.
One for reports of smoke coming from an apartment building on County Road. When crews arrived, they found a small fire behind the gas stove, and were quickly able to get it under control.
Eddington Fire Lt. Craig Russell said “The tenant arrived and found smoke in the apartment, closed the door and exited, and then called the fire department. So she did everything right.”
No one was hurt and the damage to the home was minimal.
Firefighters remind people to properly maintain their appliances to avoid a dangerous situation.
