Small structure fire extinguished on Quail Drive
COLUMBIA - Firefighters responded to a home on Quail Drive for a fire Wednesday night.
The call went out shortly before 11 p.m. for a fire at a home in the 2600 block of Quail Drive. Crews arrived in less than four minutes and found light smoke coming from a two-story apartment building. They discovered a small fire in a bedroom on the second floor and quickly put it out with a portable fire extinguisher.
Three people were in the apartment at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported. Working smoke alarms alerted the occupants who got out safely.
The Columbia Fire Department Fire Marshal's Office conducted an investigation and determined the fire was caused by a space heater coming in contact with combustible items. Damages are estimated at $3,500.
