Gainesville Fire Rescue Responds To Two Fires Monday Morning


Two fires occurred this morning in the Gainesville area.

Gainesville Fire Rescue received a call at 4:40 a.m. about a two-story apartment building fire. Henics Heights Condominiums, 1114 NW 6th Street, had one individually-owned unit on fire.

The unit was under restoration, says Gainesville Fire Rescue in a press release. A total of two Engine companies came into use to extinguish the fire in the main apartment, and a third provided water.

Two ladders were used to search for victims and to reach the fire on the second floor in the attic space. Within ten minutes of being at the scene, crews had the fire under control.

At 7:22 a.m. Gainesville Fire Rescue units were called to a single-story house fire.

The single-story house fire, 2210 NW 1st Ave., seems to have begun over the garage in the attic, according to the Gainesville Fire rescue. The fire is currently under investigation.

Eighteen minutes after the 911 call was made, crews had the fire out. The residents of the home live out of town, and the home was unoccupied at the time.
