The Chapel Hill Fire Department has five stations, one of which is on Hamilton Road.

The Carrboro Fire-Rescue Department and New Hope Volunteer Fire Department responded to a structure fire at Estes Park Apartments at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4. 

The fire was put out within minutes of firefighters arriving at the apartment complex, Carrboro Fire Chief Susanna Williams said. An Estes Park Apartments resident used a fire extinguisher to help put out the fire as officials were called.

Units from the Chapel Hill Fire Department and North Chatham Volunteer Fire Department were dispatched to the fire, but were cancelled after the fire was quickly extinguished. Officers from the Carrboro Police Department were also at the scene to assist with traffic control. 

“In Orange County we have a very robust (automatic)-aid agreement, so for a structure fire, our neighboring departments are dispatched to assist so we have additional personnel,” Williams said. 

The fire has been ruled an accident, Williams said. There were no injuries.
