How do I get the fire report from the fire at my home or business?

First step is to fill out the City’s Access to Public Records Request form (please include address and date of fire along with contact information) and turn in to the City’s Legal Department or Fire Department. After approval, the report will be released. The Fire Department will contact the resident that the report is available along with the cost ($9.00 or $25.00 depending upon the classification) and where they can pick up the report. Payment must be cash or check payable to South Bend Fire Department. The Access to Public Records Form can be found here:
