A resident at the 2800 block of Eagle Valley Drive accidentally got locked out of her home Wednesday morning during a stovetop fire.
A officer used a “slim jim” to access the resident’s vehicle, which was parked on the street, and officials used the garage-door opener to let firefighters into the home, said Fire Chief Todd Johnson.
Smoke had built up inside the house and the resident went outside and the door locked behind her, Johnson said. No one was injured and there was little damage to the home, he said.
Firefighters had cleared the scene by about 9:15 a.m. Wednesday morning.
