Response to Kitchen Fire Praised By Clearview Fire Chief

Fire Chief Calls Stayner-Area Home Evacuation "Textbook"

A “textbook” reaction to a kitchen fire in Stayner.

It all happened around dinnertime Tuesday night; Clearview fire got the call to a home on Highway 26 just east of Stayner, and arrived to find the young resident had already gotten herself outside. Better yet, Chief Roree Payment says the young lady had the foresight to close the door behind her as she calmly evacuated, before calling 911, saying that is a textbook response to a fire.

In speaking with Barrie 360, Chief Payment adds there were no injuries and minimal structural damage.
