[ARCHIVED] Keep the Wreath Green - Fifth and Sixth Red Bulbs Placed on Fire Safety Wreath

The fifth and sixth green light bulbs have been replaced for the "Keep the Wreath Green" fire safety campaign after Escambia County Fire Rescue responded to two structure fires in the local community.

Most recently, Escambia County Fire Rescue responded to a structure fire on the 700 block of Citrus St. The first 911 call was received at 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 15, with on-site crews reporting smoke and flames showing from a mobile home. Escambia County Fire Rescue was able to extinguish the fire, but the structure and contents of the home resulted in a total loss. Residents have been displaced and are being assisted by the American Red Cross. The State Fire Marshal's Office is investigating the cause of the fire.

Last week, crews also responded to a structure fire off N. Warrington Road. The first 911 call was received at 5:04 p.m., and the fire was brought under control at 7:37 p.m. Flames were caused by an electrical fire, and no injuries were reported.

The “Keep the Wreath Green” fire safety campaign is a collaborative initiative with City of Pensacola and Santa Rosa County to promote fire safety during the month of December. During the month-long campaign, five-foot wreaths will be on display at 23 different county fire stations. Every time firefighters respond to a residential fire, a green light bulb will be replaced with a red one to remind citizens of the dangers posed by holiday decorations.

Everyone is encouraged to follow @cityofpensacola and @BeReadyEscambia on Twitter for safety tips each day of the month. For more information, contact the Escambia County Office of Community and Media Relations at (850) 595-3476.
