Fire call on the 700 block of Locust

The newly consolidated Columbia Borough Fire Company responded to a fire call on Locust Street this evening, joined by vehicles and personnel from Wrightsville and Mount Joy Fire Departments. The emergency reportedly stemmed from a grease fire in the kitchen at 729 Locust. The fire spread when an occupant threw water on it in an attempt to put it out.  After attending to the fire, crews used fans to ventilate the residence as well as the neighboring property at 731 Locust.
