ChelanFireRescueLogo20003/21/2017 at 0824 hours, Chelan Fire and Rescue’s (CFR) Engine 71, 79, Rescue 71, Medic 3171, Tender 71 and Chief 702  responded to a commercial fire at 60 SR150, Zippy Disposal Service, for a fire in one of their shops.  

First unit arrived within two minutes from time of dispatch to find smoke coming from the building and the remains of a fire that had been knocked down by employees using portable fire extinguishers.  CFR crews finished extinguishing the fire and checked for possible extension.  

Damage was limited to a garbage container with minor heat and smoke damage to a wall and work bench area. Cause of the fire is under investigation.

Value of the building is estimated at about $138,000.00. There was no structural damage and minimal damage to the contents.

CFR gives Zippy Disposal Service a big at-a-boy for having their extinguishers available and employees taking appropriate, safe action, to limit fire spread  by knocking the main body of the fire down.

This is a great example of why everyone should have fire extinguishers and have them serviced annually to make sure they are in good working order. Good Job to Zippy Disposal Service employees.
