From Town of Cairo Police:
MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE PROPER FUEL SOURCE FOR HEATING
Police and Fire responded to a residence on Jerome Avenue Friday, for a report of a possible explosion. A rapid responding Cairo Fireman was first to arrive as an occupant from the residence came out screaming.
The Fireman was able to quickly stop a fire from consuming a residence that was occupied by a family. The Fireman extinguished the flames immediately and minimized damage. The Red Cross aided the family at the scene.
The cause appears to be that a KEROSENE heater was accidentally filled with GASOLINE causing the rapidly growing fire as the heater was lit. A container was simply thought to have contained KEROSENE and actually contained GASOLINE.
THANKS TO CAIRO FIRE FOR AN IMMEDIATE RESPONSE AND AWESOME STOP.
