AFD Assistant Chief Stromgren directing the attack
Amherst Fire Department knocked down a structure fire at 214 Glendale Road South Amherst in about a half-hour this cold morning, confining the major damage to a family room addition at the rear of the house, where the fire originated, and roof. There were no injuries.
Assistant Chief Lindsay Stromgren was on the scene directing the efforts of two original responding engines and an ambulance, that were quickly supplemented with many more pieces of heavy apparatus.
Anxious moments until firefighters confirmed nobody was in the house
Amherst police were first on the scene reporting smoke and fire on the back porch which quickly spread to the attached one family ranch. Animal control officer Carol Hepburn also responded but no word if there were any pets impacted.
