Quintette Fire Is Sixth Bulb In ‘Keep The Wreath Green’ Fire Safety Wreath

December 7, 2021

The are now six red bulbs on Escambia County Fire Rescue’s “Keep the Wreath” fire safety wreath following a fire Monday in the Quintette community.

Fire heavily damaged the double wide mobile home on St. Matthews Lane, leaving the residents without a home. [Click here for more information.]

We first reported Tuesday morning that this was the fifth red bulb, but Escambia Fire Rescue later determined that another Cantonment fire last Friday will be counted as a red bulb. The fire destroyed a large shed that was being used as a residence and was not originally counted as a red bulb.

During the month-long Keep the Wreath Green campaign, five-foot wreaths are on display at county fire stations and other locations. Each time firefighters respond to a residential fire with damage, a green light bulb is replaced with a red one to remind citizens of the dangers posed by fires in residential homes.
