Kids can learn what it’s like to be a firefighter (without the danger) at CCFR Kids Fire Academy. Campers will spend the day at five activity stations trying out real firefighting equipment like fire hoses, thermal imaging cameras and fire extinguishers, seeing fire trucks up close and learning how they work, experiencing first-hand some of the other firefighter/EMT duties, and playing fun firefighting games.
At around 12:20 a.m. on Tuesday, June 7 firefighters from Central County Fire & Rescue, Cottleville Fire Protection District and O'Fallon Fire Protection District and St. Charles County Ambulance District responded to a house fire in the 1100 block of Birdie Hills Rd. St. Charles County Ambulance Medic 10 was the first to arrive and reported heavy fire showing from the home.
When emergency responders arrived everyone was out of the home and firefighters began extinguishing the fire. Two victims were transported to a local hospital for what is believed to be smoke inhalation.
The fire is being investigated by CCFR, and a cause is not available at this time.
