Family escapes fire on Flanders in BG

A family of four escaped a house fire Sunday night on Flanders Avenue.

A couple and their two children are safe, said Capt. Terry Busch, with the Bowling Green Fire Division.

Fire was blazing through the roof upon arrival around 9:30 p.m., he said.

“They made an initial attack and then our ladder truck and other engines and support units showed up after that,” Busch said. “The initial attack was from the exterior, we also pulled a second line and did an interior attack.”

The fire was confined to the attic area, he said.

Firefighters on Sunday night were keeping an eye on the house, making sure the fire didn’t flare again.
