Electrical Fire Causes Afternoon Emergency Response In Guymon
12/22/2009

Guymon Firefighters responded to 911 reports of smoke coming from a home at 1707 N. James at 4:43pm Monday afternoon. "On Firefighters arrival, they found heavy smoke conditions coming from the eaves and vent covers on the roof", said Assistant Chief Grant Wadley. Firefighters quickly recognized the fire was located in the attic space of the home then began searching for and extinguishing the fire immediately.

Home owners, Francisco and Eva Montelongo, were home at the time preparing food for an evening Christmas dinner with friends. Interviews and fire investigation found that a short in electrical wiring located in the attic underneath an area of insulation was the cause of the fire. Fire spread into the insulation, wall and ceiling supports, and through heating and air ducts. "Fire and water damage was confined to the ceiling and attic areas in a hallway and kitchen of the home", Wadley said. Damage from the fire, smoke, and water is estimated at $10,000. The family Christmas presents and other important family items were located and saved from any damage by Firefighters early in the incident.

Guymon Fire Department responded with 3 fire units, 1 Paramedic unit, and 20 firefighters. Also assisting at the scene during the incident was the Guymon Police Department, Guymon Emergency Management, Local Red Cross, Tri-County Electric, and City of Guymon Gas & Water department.
