On Tuesday, June 6, 2023, at approximately 2:31 AM, Capital City Fire Rescue responded to the 1100 block of Fritz Cove Road for a residential structure fire. While responding, dispatch advised there were potentially two occupants trapped inside. Just prior to the fire personnel arriving, the downstairs tenant was able to evacuate the structure, contact the owner on the second floor, and used a nearby ladder to rescue the owner from the second-floor exterior deck. There were no injuries reported from either occupant. Upon arrival, fire personnel found a two-story home with heavy fire and smoke from the roof. The fire was well-involved in the attic space and affected the entire space upon arrival. Due to interior construction, the ceiling was wooden tongue and groove which significantly slowed a timely access to the attic before being too large of a fire to control from underneath or even the exterior.
