TFD Responds to Structure Fire on North Monroe Street

April 01, 2024

On March 31, at 9:20 p.m., the Tallahassee Fire Department (TFD) was dispatched to a possible structure fire located in the 900 block of North Monroe Street. TFD crews arrived on scene in less than five minutes to find heavy smoke coming from a single-story commercial building.

TFD personnel quickly made entry into the building and discovered fire in the lobby area. Firefighters quickly began extinguishing the fire and searching for possible occupants. TFD crews were able to contain the fire primarily to the lobby area, preserving and saving the majority of the structure and preventing damage to the surrounding area. There were no occupants found inside the building at the time of the fire. The State Fire Marshal's office was called to the scene for further investigation. There were no injuries reported on scene.

The Tallahassee Fire Department was assisted on scene by the Tallahassee Police Department and City of Tallahassee Utilities.

Remember to check your smoke alarms to make sure they are in proper working condition, as smoke alarms can provide the early warning necessary to escape a deadly fire. A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Get more fire prevention information from TFD at
