Week 14 Zero21 House Fire Update - The Farmington Fire Department is sad to announce Farmington's 109-day streak without any house fires was broken. On Sunday afternoon firefighters responded to a fire on the exterior of an attached garage. Luckily for the family that lived here, a passerby noticed the fire and immediately acted. Many of the fires they respond to are VERY VERY easy to prevent. The cause of this fire was from dumping ashes from a recreational fire the night before into a trash receptacle. Just before this fire call, firefighters were finishing up with a large brush fire likely caused by carelessly discarded smoking materials. Please help them keep you safe by following the #Zero21 fire prevention tips. We are going to do our best to get important fire safety tips out to everyone so we don’t have anymore fires in 2021!
