Around 1 pm Saturday, crews from the Campbell County Rural Fire Service were dispatched to Whitman Hollow Lane on the report of a house on fire. TOP PHOTO: A brush fire close to four-acres in size burned near this home. The home was not touched.
The fire at the house started from a brush fire that was out of control. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the exterior of the house and were able to contain the brush fire to around two-acres. There was also an out building that was saved with minor heat damage to the exterior.
This home on Whitman Hollow Lane suffered some damage.
On Sunday at 3 pm, firefighters with the CCRFS were called to another brush fire. This fire, on Mill Road off Victory, was quite large, according to CCRFS Assistant Chief Daniel Lawson and was threatening a house. Upon arrival, crews found one house threatened and contained the fire to around four-acres with no damage to the house or any other structures.
Lawson offers a reminder that a burn permit is required this time of year and to never leave a fire unattended. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 03/25/2019-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF CCRFS ASSISTANT CHIEF DANIEL LAWSON)
