Upon arrival, firefighters found the home heavily involved, with flames and smoke rolling from the structure. The fire, believed to have started in the kitchen or utility room, ultimately spread throughout the home, resulting in a total loss.
Crews fought the inferno for hours, gaining control of the fire at approximately 5:30 a.m. The RFD remained on-site through much of the morning. Many members of the RFD went directly to their regular jobs and duties with little to no rest following blaze. The Times-Democrat would like to commend the volunteers of the RFD for their dedication and service.
More details will be featured in the upcoming edition of the Times-Democrat.
