Two Fort Collins Police Services officers, Justin Gallimore and Matt Hahn, worked with off-duty PFA firefighter Jason Gallimore to help save a restaurant from severe damage today. The three were having lunch when they were alerted to a fire in the kitchen. They immediately took action by notifying dispatchers, evacuating the business and attempting to extinguish the fire located on and above a stove. Using two fire extinguishers they were able to slow the fire but not fully extinguish it. Shortly after fire companies arrived fire was shooting above the roof. Firefighters were able to get a quick knockdown thereby containing damage to the kitchen hood vent system.
