Firefighters put out flames at another Omaha fire station

July 30, 2018

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Firefighters from a northwest Omaha station have put out a fire that erupted at another Omaha fire station.

A battalion chief caught a whiff of smoke at the station a little after 10 a.m. Sunday and found the station kitchen ablaze. He called for help because most of the firefighters assigned there were out on a call.

Fire crews from a station less than 5 miles (8 kilometers) away responded. It took them about 15 minutes to put out the fire in the kitchen and living areas. No injuries were reported.

The fire cause is being investigated. Most of the station’s firefighters and equipment were moved temporarily to another station.
