In the 1960’s, most rural areas of Kansas had no organized fire protection, and Blue Township was no different.  One night in 1966, a fire broke out in the K-Hill Engine Service shop on east Highway 24. Owners John and Wilma Brooks got a call from neighbors that it was on fire, and began frantically making phone calls to get help.  There was no “911” in those days, so…

Shortly before 6pm, BTFD responded to the 4500 blk of Kelsey Drive for a kitchen fire. Engine 1 arrived and entered the home to find a small fire on and around the stove and extinguished it. Crews ensured there was no extension of fire to any other surrounding areas and cleared the home of smoke.

We did want to quickly commend the home owner for their quick action and taking the time to try to smother the fire and use a fire extinguisher instead of frantically douse the hot pan with water. They then gathered the family and made sure everyone was out of the house and called 911. They did absolutely everything right and these quick actions certainly bought extra time to prevent additional damages while we were on the way. Water and grease fires DO NOT MIX! It can lead to a violent reaction and make the flames even bigger. Thankfully, there were no injuries and our BTFD crews cleared the scene leaving very minimal damage to the stove top. A great response by our volunteers!
