Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Wednesday, June 11, 2014 7A PROPANE, from page 6A to doors and windows, flying fragments from the fire ignited the neighbor's deck. No other structures were damaged, said Phillips. Multiple agencies responded to the fire, which was initially reported as a wildfire. Phillips said thanks to the inaccurate report, Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service arrived much sooner than they would have for a residential fire. "The end result worked in our favor and the fire was contained around midnight," he said. PFPD Engine 7121 completed the initial attack, followed' by crews from Lake Almanor West Fire Department and Hamilton Branch Fire Department. "We express our deepest appreciation to all agencies involved," said Phillips. "This was a very difficult residential structure fire and the level of cooperation and teamwork between all agencies was excellent." The work is not over yet, however. Phillips said the home and its surroundings are being inspected every two hours to ensure nothing was missed that might reignite the fire. He said they will continue to check on it throughout the day Tuesday and that he is feeling confident they got everything. Although he was unable to provide specifics of the investigation, Ferrellgas spokesperson Scott Brockelmeyer said last week, "We pledge our support to the local fire department and any other agencies that have jurisdiction. We are as anxious to understand what happened as anyone."
