No injuries reported

On November 25, 2021 at approximately 1709 hours, the Killeen Fire Department was dispatched to 5703 Jim Avenue for a structure fire.  The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time while it is under investigation.  The fire originated in the back-room addition to the structure. 

Two people were displaced and no one was injured.  One person was in the structure at the time of the fire. He was able to get out after hearing his smoke detectors going off, which allowed him to escape safely.

“We want to remind residents of the importance of operable smoke detectors,” Fire Chief Jim Kubinski said. “Please make sure to check the batteries in the fire alarms with the daylight-saving time change biannually, which is our recommended practice.”

The last unit cleared the scene at approximately 2321 hours.  The building inspector deemed the structure uninhabitable.  The Red Cross was called for the displaced family.
