Firefighters Are Called Back For Fire At Their Own Station

MARY LOUISE KELLY, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. Firefighters at North Deering Station in Portland, Maine, were out responding to a dryer fire when a report came in of smoke back at their own station. They'd been cooking dinner when they got called away, and somebody left the stove on. Several fire trucks responded. Firefighters are human, says Chief David Jackson, this could happen to anyone. Which reminds me to just go check that bagel I've got toasting. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
