A fire broke out earlier this week at the Pana Towers building in Pana. The fire was able to be contained to one unit in the building, however as a precaution, the building was evacuated, with most residents able to return later that day, with the rest able to return the following day.
Pana Fire Chief Rod Bland spoke with Regional Radio News and had details on how the fire got started.
Chief Bland discussed the evacuation process, and how the Pana Fire Fighters got quite the workout while helping with the evacuation.
Chief Bland said the floors were ventilated to clear the smoke from the building, and did not report any injuries.
