At 1218 hours, the structure fire assignment was struck for the 1700 block of Beaumont Ave reporting a bedroom was on fire. Asst 11 on scene with nothing from the exterior. Asst 11 did confirm light to medium smoke on the 2nd division with a charred wall in a child’s bedroom. E11 on scene and went in service. Crews opened up the wall to find no extension. The fire was contained to the night stand, box and outer portion of the wall. It was determined a switch from a Scentsy Pot was the cause. The resident threw water on it before leaving the house and that put the fire out prior to our arrival.
As it is not recommended to fight your own fire in a contained area, this time it was successful but very dangerous.
