Quick response to smoke alarm prevents house fire

A quick response to a smoke alarm by the Williams Lake Fire Department prevented a house fire Friday.

Quick action by the Williams Lake Fire Department to a smoke alarm Friday prevented a possible house fire.

At around 1:30 p.m. the fire department responded after an alarm company reported that a residential smoke alarm was going off at a home in the 500 block of Pigeon Avenue.

When firefighters arrived, there were no occupants at home, and upon entry they discovered that a pot was burning on the stove in the kitchen at the back of the home, but there were no flames.

“It had filled the house with smoke,” Deputy Fire chief Rob Warnock said.
