At 10:50 PM last night, the Holland Fire Department was dispatched to a report of a residential fire at 1055 Lincoln, lot 53. Callers reported smoke coming from the roof of a mobile home and it was unknown if it was occupied. Approximately 4 minutes after the time of dispatch, the department's first arriving unit reported a working fire in the home and began to attempt to locate potential occupants and began efforts to extinguish the fire. As units from other stations arrived minutes later, firefighters made further entry into the structure to conduct a search for occupants and control the fire that involved the rear of the residence.
The interior search by firefighters revealed that there were no occupants in the home at the time of the fire. The fire was knocked down quickly after arrival and crews remained in scene for about an hour and a half completing extinguishment and searching for hot spots and reloading equipment. Although the home sustained significant damage, direct fire damage was contained to the rear of the home. The timely efforts by firefighters prevented the fire from spreading to 3 other mobile homes that are adjacent to the initial fire building.
There were no injuries to firefighters or residents in the area as a result of the fire. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time and department's Fire Marshal will be initiating an investigation.
The Holland Fire Department received assistance from the Holland Police Department and AMR. The Graafschap Fire Department provided station standby to cover other potential EMS or Fire calls in the city during this incident.
