The Danville Fire Department was dispatched to an outbuilding fire on Edmonds Street during the early morning hours of February 2nd. Engine 3 arrived at 1:14 AM and reported a large outbuilding on fire. At this point the fire had already consumed 95% of the building. As other apparatus arrived, multiple hose lines were pulled to control the fire. The fire was a defensive fire (no interior firefighting) at the onset. The fire was under control in approximately 25 minutes. Crews spent the majority of the time wetting down the frame and contents of the building. The address of the fire was 640 Edmonds Street.
The 1200 square foot building housed one vehicle, yard equipment, and many other stored items. All items and the building were a total loss. The DFD responded with three engines, one ladder, and two support vehicles. There were 16 DFD personnel on scene. Support was also received from the Danville Police Department and the Danville Life Saving Crew. There were no injuries.
All apparatus cleared from Edmonds Street at 3:33 AM. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
