Forest Hill Building Fire
The BAVFC along with mutual aid partners worked this one alarm building fire at the Jump On It business located off Industry Lane in Forest Hill. First arriving fire crews found heavy black smoke showing on arrival. It took approximately 15 min to place the fire under control. The cause was attributed to a motor on an inflatable jump. Damages are estimated at $500,000. There were no injuries however the heat and humidity made work more difficult.
The business was open and had 12 persons inside when the fire broke out. Credit goes to the staff of Jump On It for their quick reaction to the fire and their fast evacuation and accountability of their guests. RG
