Capital City Fire Rescue responded to a fire Saturday evening. At 5:30 p.m. the fire department was on the scene of a structure fire on Pederson Street near Engineers Cutoff Road. Chief Travis Mead was in command. Chief Mead gave a detailed recap of last night's firefighting. "At about 5:30 pm yesterday we were toned out to a house fire, residential structure fire on Pederson. We responded there and on arrival, we encountered a home three-story residential home that had had a fire on what we call the Charlie Delta corner. The fire had already vetted out one of the exterior windows and was making its way up the site at home. We had at least two fire engines, multiple ambulances, and multiple volunteer staff responding to this location. The way that the road is set up, there's a long dirt road that has a hydrant across Engineers Cut Off and there's another hydrant down the road aways."
