Rapid City firefighters at Watertown Street home fire

By  | 

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN TV) - Multiple stations from the Rapid City Fire Department responded to a mobile home fire at 110 East Watertown at about four Thursday afternoon.

Fire crews say prior to their arrival at the fire it was reported to 911 that someone was attempting to kick in the front door of the mobile home.
And while the person may have had good intentions, the fire department would like to remind people that kicking in the front door puts yourself at risk, and can make the fire stronger.
im Bussell says, " we work to control what is known as the flow path, the flow of air from one end of the structure to the other. And that is important in firefighting because if that flow path is not controlled the fire has the ability to spread very very quickly.">

After a primary search of the home they found no one inside.
It was reported to 911 that there were pets inside, but no animals were located within the residence either.
