Press Release: Building Fire, Staab Repair, 611 East 13th Street, Hays

At 1:18 PM, Monday, March 12, 2018, City of Hays emergency dispatchers were alerted to a building fire at Staab Repair, 611 East 13th Street. The City of Hays Fire Department, assisted by Ellis County Fire Department Company 5, the Hays Police Department and Ellis County EMS, was immediately dispatched.

Arriving firefighters found a pick-up truck on fire inside a vehicle repair shop. One hose line was used to control the fire. The fire did not spread to the building. No one was injured. After the fire was extinguished, firefighters used ventilation blowers to remove the heavy smoke from inside the building.

The most probable cause of the fire was a malfunction in the engine compartment of the pick-up truck.

Five fire trucks and 24 firefighters responded. The last fire crew left the scene at 2:13 PM.

Your Hays firefighters would like to remind everyone to call 911 promptly when a fire occurs. Fires can grow and spread very quickly. Having the fire department on the way as soon as possible can help to limit the damage from a fire.
