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.
