June 23, 2019

Escambia Fire Rescue responded to a reported house fire in Walnut Hill Saturday night.

Shortly after 10 p.m. a resident of North Cypress Street awoke to find his house full of smoke. Firefighters discovered the source of the smoke was a pot of chicken on the stove in the small brick home. The fire did not spread to any part of the kitchen.

The adult male resident was evaluated on scene by Escambia County EMS for possible smoke inhalation, but he refused transport to the hospital.

The Walnut Hill, McDavid and Molino stations of Escambia Fire Rescue, Nokomis (AL) Volunteer Fire Department and Atmore Fire Department were all dispatched to the fire. Many units were canceled prior to arrival. photos, click to enlarge.
