CPFR was dispatched to Water Hills Lane in Vass on around 3:45 pm for a structure fire. Our automatic aid departments included Southern Pines Fire/Rescue, Whispering Pines Fire/Rescue, Moore County EMS and the Moore County Sheriff's Office.
Upon the arrival of Engine 211 they reported a "Working Kitchen Fire", Engine 211 laid a supply line from the closest fire hydrant and deployed two attack lines to the interior of the home. The house was quickly searched for any victims while the fire was being extinguished. There was no one at home at the time of the fire, the residents returned while the fire department was still on scene.
The Moore County Fire Marshal's Office conducted the fire investigation and determined that this fire was related to the stove top in the kitchen.
