At approximately 8:20 pm on January 3rd in Florissant, this single family residence became the scene of a significant one alarm fire. Preliminary investigation shows fire originated in the attached garage. Because the residents, who were on the second floor at the time, had properly installed and working smoke detectors, they were alerted to the blaze when the fire first began and were able to escape their home quickly and call 911. Fast response by Florissant Valley, Robertson and Hazelwood Fire Districts limited most of the heaviest damage to the garage and kitchen. There was also smoke damage throughout the rest of the home. However, the residence is salvageable and the home owners are safe because of their use of smoke detectors. It is a object lesson for all home owners.
Our Fire Marshal Cliff Robinson received the Paul Harris Fellow award December 6th, 2018 in appreciation for his service to North County. Cliff not only makes the Florissant Fire District safer place to live but assists Ferguson, Black Jack, Spanish Lake, Riverview and North East Fire Districts as well.
