According to news reports, a fire on Fillmore caused $120,000 of damage and left 12 people homeless prompting the Red Cross to offer assistance.

According to information provided online, here a list of what you do in case of a fire in your home:

Immediately pull the nearest fire alarm pull station as you exit the building.

 

When evacuating the building, be sure to feel doors for heat before opening them to be sure there is no fire danger on the other side.

 

If there is smoke in the air, stay low to the ground, especially your head, to reduce inhalation exposure. Keep on hand on the wall to prevent disorientation and crawl to the nearest exit.

 

Once away and clear from danger, call your report contact and inform them of the fire.

 

Go to your refuge area and await further instructions from emergency personnel.
