Fire Causes Minor Damage At Century Correctional Institution
May 18, 2010
Fire caused minor damage Monday night at Century Correctional Institution.
The first firefighters on scene just after 9 p.m. reported a “working fire” on a pavilion. The pavilion is a covered picnic area in the middle of the dormitory building complex. The fire was quickly extinguished. No other buildings were threatened, and there were no injuries reported.
The fire was believed to have started with a light on the pavilion.
The Century, McDavid, Walnut Hill and Molino stations of Escambia Fire Rescue and the Flomaton Fire Department responded to the call, along with Escambia County EMS.
