Duplex Fire Displaces Two Adults, 1 Child


A fire in an Evansville duplex has forced three people from their home. 

Firefighters were dispatched to 849 Stanley Avenue just before 9:00 Monday morning, when a resident in Apt. A saw fire in the kitchen of Apt. B.

In a release, Division Chief Mike Larson said firefighters found a stove on fire.

He said crews quickly knocked the fire down, containing most of the flames to the kitchen.

Larson said there was “minimal extension” into the attic.

There were no injuries but two adults and one child were displaced from apartment A.

The EFD contacted the American Red Cross to help them.

The initial investigator’s report said it will likely be classified as an accidental fire.
