Firefighters extinguish fire in home’s basement

Firefighters from the Greenwood, Lakemont and Logan Township United fire departments doused a blaze Wednesday in a matter of minutes, Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Mark Rispoli said.

“The guys did a good, quick knockdown of the fire,” Rispoli said. “They probably had it out within 10 minutes of arriving.”

The fire started in the basement of a residence at 1101 Rosehill Drive, and no injuries were reported.

Logan Township police and emergency services responded with about five fire engines and apparatus, Rispoli said.

“There was moderate damage to the residence, but no one got hurt,” he said.
