A quick response and a team effort Monday helped bring a kitchen fire under control and save a Pembroke home from further damage. 

Around lunchtime, firefighter Bob Nietzold was nearby when the call went out to the Pembroke Fire Department and Bryan County Emergency Services for a house fire.

He quickly got to the scene and after assessing the situation, went around back, grabbed a garden hose and opened the back door of the residence, where he sprayed water on the fire. 

His efforts helped hold the fire in check until Pembroke’s Engine 1 and Bryan County’s Engine 5 arrived and extinguished the fire completely.

No injuries were reported. Lt. Joseph Walraven from Pembroke was in charge of the incident.
