(May 31, 2014) Two people are being treated for burns following a fire at a duplex, 9864 Camfield Avenue. Meanwhile, investigators are trying to determine the cause of the blaze that caused extensive damage to both units.
Dispatchers received a 911 call from one of the residents at 12:39 p.m. Frisco firefighters arrived at
12:44 p.m. and found ‘heavy smoke’ from the rear of the structure. Firefighters also found two residents outside the duplex, suffering from burns. Firefighters did rescue two dogs.
Additional fire units were called to the scene. Given the extensive flames, firefighters were concerned about dry brush, a back fence catching fire and threatening other structures in the area. In all, five engines, one truck, three ambulances and the Light Air & Rehab unit responded. The fire was extinguished at approximately 1:45 p.m.
Two ambulances were used to transport a man and a woman to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, where they’re being treated for burns. Their conditions are unknown.
A third ambulance remained at the scene.
Investigators say both units of the duplex are approximately 70% damaged. Again, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
