Hidden Knoll Structure Fire
At 15:07 firefighters were dispatched to a single family bi-level style residence. While enroute to a confirmed fire, dispatchers notified fire units of a “person trapped on the second floor”. Crews arrived on scene to find an exterior deck fire that had extended into the kitchen and attic of the residence. Fire attack and search was completed simultaneously to mitigate the fire quickly. There were no victims inside the structure as the homeowner was not home. Police were first to arrive on scene and radioed dispatch that “a subject was yelling in the second floor window.” Dispatch took this as someone was inside the house and trapped when actually it was a bystander yelling into the window to see if anyone was inside.
