Dishwasher Fire 9/16/2020

SMOKE DETECTORS SAVE LIVES
At 1:30 AM on Wednesday morning (9/16/2020), the SWFD was dispatched to a home on Austin Circle for a reported dishwasher fire. On arrival, first-in companies found that the dishwasher was previously on fire, however; it had been extinguished by the homeowner. The sleeping residents were alerted to the fire by their smoke detectors, which allowed them to safely evacuate their 3 young children and extinguish the fire prior to it causing catastrophic damage. The cause of the fire is under investigation by the South Windsor Fire Marshal's Office and there were no reported injuries.
