OK FF INJURED AT BUILDING FIRE

     

Friday, December 7, 2012 One firefighter was injured during a blaze that occurred at a Roland business early Friday morning. Roland fire chief James Edwards said assistant fire chief Phillip Niemann was injured when part of a wall fell while fighting a blaze at Full Circle Screen Printing located at 812 South Roland Road.

Edwards said Niemann suffered a broken right foot and was taken to a Fort Smith, Ark., hospital. Edwards said Niemann was treated and released.


Edwards said his unit was dispatched to the fire at 12:45 a.m. Friday morning.


The fire was under control in about one hour, Edwards said. There were one or two hot spots detected later on Friday, but were put out.


The Roland, Muldrow and Liberty Fire Departments responded to the scene several minutes later, Edwards said.


“There was fire on the back side of the building,” Edwards said, ”and smoke was coming from both ends of the gables. The fire was fully engulfed very quickly.”


Edwards said the Oklahoma State Fire Marshal will not be contacted in connection with the fire.


Edwards said the Roland Fire Department has completed its investigation into the fire. The fire reportedly started in an area where operating equipment is used to screen print T-shirts.


In addition to screen-printing T-shirts, Full Circle produced promotional products, performed monogramming and had several tanning beds, Edwards said.


The building’s roof caved in and the gables were charred black. It is considered a total loss.
