Structure Fire on Hall Street

structurefire 300MADISONVILLE, KY (5/7/12) – On Monday morning, at approximately 4:27 AM, the Madisonville Fire Department (MFD) responded to a report of a residential structure fire on Hall Street between Scott and Franklin Streets.
 
Once on the scene, MFD found heavy smoke and fire showing at 146 Hall Street. A 360 degree survey was conducted and revealed fire was showing from windows at the basement and 1st floor on the side of the structure.
 
Engine-17 made an interior attack on the basement from the C-side of the structure with a 1 3/4" pre-connected hose line. Interior crews encountered and extinguished heavy fire conditions and determined that the fire had burned through the floor from the basement into the first floor. Gas and electric meters were shut off by Ladder-2 crew. Two additional 1 3/4' hand lines were deployed by arriving engine companies. A rapid intervention team was established on the alpha side.
 
Station four was moved down town to cover city for responding units, and then later deployed to the scene. Interior crew exited the structure and the fire where the floor was burned away was attacked defensively. Positive pressure ventilation was used to assist in the fire attack. After the fire was knocked down, firefighters entered the structure and conducted extensive overhaul operations of the basement, first floor, and attic, to insure that all fire was extinguished and no hot spots remained.
 
The area of origin was determined to be the basement kitchen area. Do to the heavy damage and extent of fire, the exact cause is undetermined at this time.
