Roof Catches Fire In Downtown Guymon
07/09/2012

Citizens driving downtown in the 300 block of Main Street definitely may have saved a business and more. At 3:03pm on Saturday, Guymon Firefighters were called to 318 N. Main Street where Guaranty Abstract & Title is located. “Smoke and flames were seen by people driving by when they called 911 immediately”, said Assistant Fire Chief Grant Wadley. Black smoke could be seen as far north as Tiger Blvd in the very beginning of the fire. On fire units arrival, Firefighters found heavy fire and smoke coming from the roof above Stanfield Printing Company (SPC). Firefighters quickly had to use ladders to get to the roof, deployed fire hose to the roof, and began fighting the fire. Firefighters within minutes had the fire under control and extinguished. 4th and Main Street was temporarily closed for the Fire Department operations at this incident. Fire Investigators found the cause to be electrical failure in a breaker box on the roof. An electrical short occurred in the box causing nearby roof insulation and roofing tar to catch fire. Fire damage was to the roof only and did not extend into the building. “This fire could have been a large loss if it wasn’t for citizens calling 911 immediately and the newer roofing insulation on the building being fire resistant”, Wadley said. Firefighters were on scene for approximately 45 minutes. No estimated costs of damages were present at the time of this report.
