Thanks, Goose. I hope you aren't one of the ones displaced per the description below from the Fire Department:

At approximately 23:15 hours or 11:15 on Friday evening we responded to a possible grease fire on the third floor.

County communications reported that all parties were told to evacuate. Upon arrival E34, Captain Bob Kelly who will retire after Sunday's shift, entered from the D side of the building or the North side. He directed T34 to bring the aerial ladder to the third floor window and bring the line in through that direction to cut off the fire from the 15 units that were uninvolved which allowed all occupants to exit safely. BC Barton commanded the fire and did an outstanding job as did all personnel.

Two units on the fire floor were totally destroyed by fire and 15 more on the fire floor were uninhabitable. 8 units below, 4 on the second and 4 on the first, had water damage. Total of 25.

25-50 people displaced. No injuries.

We went to a third alarm. 10 different agencies, 25 units and about 60 personnel.
