No major damage from Fort Leonard Wood fire, post spokesman says
FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (April 2, 2010) — Fires caused smoke and water damage to several different homes on Fort Leonard Wood early Friday afternoon, but post public affairs personnel don’t yet have full details from the firefighters of what happened.

According to preliminary reports from civilian agencies, Fort Leonard Wood firefighters received a call to an active structure fire at 29 McKenzie Street on post that began prior to 1 p.m. Friday. St. Robert firefighters were paged to assist with an engine to cover smoke in the attic of an adjoining home at 30 McKenzie Drive, but after they arrived, Fort Leonard Wood firefighters determined that the St. Robert engine was not needed and released them to return to the city.

Waynesville firefighters were called to handle any additional calls in the St. Robert city limits while the St. Robert fire crew is on Fort Leonard Wood.

“No major damage but there is some smoke and water damage,” according to post spokesman Jeff Maddy, who said firefighters hadn’t yet reported the extent of those damages.

No one was injured or killed in the blaze, Maddy said.
