On Sept. 19 at approximately 10:54 p.m., the Goldsboro Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at Krispy Kreme, 2607 E. Ash St. Engines 2, 4, 5, Tower 1, and the Battalion Chief responded with 14 personnel.
Upon arrival, Engine 2 advised smoke showing from the kitchen exhaust hood system and a small fire inside the building. The fire was located in the cooking oil on their conveyor system. The fire suppression system activated and kept the fire contained prior to the arrival of fire department crews. Fire crews utilized the building’s Class K fire extinguisher to completely extinguish the fire.
The fire was called under control at 11:03 p.m. Crews investigated and determined the cause of the fire to be accidental due to heating elements being left on and heating the oil to its ignition temperature.
Crews were on the scene for a total of one and a half hours. The building was turned over to the general manager, and crews cleared the scene at 12:20 a.m.
