Another Kitchen Fire at Heights of Collingswood
The second kitchen fire in a week struck the 'D' building at the apartment complex overnight Friday.
A family of three was displaced in an early-morning kitchen fire at the Heights of Collingswood apartment building overnight.
The incident was held to just one unit in the "D" Tower of the building, and there were "No injuries, no problems," said Collingswood Fire Chief Keith Davis.
Collingswood F.D. was dispatched to the property at 2:31 a.m. Saturday. Within eight minutes, the fire had developed into an all-hands call, which Davis has said is standard procedure in a property of its size. He estimates the situation was under control within 20 minutes.
"We knocked it down pretty quick," Davis said.
Earlier this week, the same building on the property was struck by a kitchen fire in another unit. Despite the proximity of these events, such incidents are "a rare occurrence," Davis said, and do not indicate that there's an endemic problem with "the building system or the kitchens or anything like that.
"Just freak luck," he said.
