Crews arrived at a property where smoke was issuing from a third floor window. Crews entered the property with breathing apparatus and swiftly extinguished the fire with one hose reel jet. A positive pressure fan was then used to clear away the smoke.

The cause of the fire was deemed as accidental ignition. One adult female suffered from minor smoke inhalation at the scene.
