Roseville Meat Company Fire

Fire crews arrived to find smoke showing from the rear of the building with employees attempting to extinguish the fire. The business was evacuated and crews quickly went to work putting out the fire. The fire was extinguished quickly but smoke was still coming from the roof of the business so crews had to dismantle parts of the structure to ensure the fire was completely out.
Multiple crews reported to the scene. A total of seven fire units with eighteen personnel responded. Assistance was also provided by American Medical Response. The fire was extinguished quickly and isolated to the rear of the business. It's unknown when the business will reopen.
In both cases, there were no civilian or firefighter injuries. The causes of the fires are under investigation. These unfortunate incidents should act as a reminder to everyone to have properly working smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are the best warning system that can alert your business or family to dangerous smoke and fire.
