Attic fire damages Arbuckle home

2016 - Arbuckle Structure Fire (3)

Multiple fire agencies responded to a single story house fire at 612 Amanda Street in Arbuckle, Thursday afternoon.

“Upon arriving on scene the house was fully engulfed,” said Arbuckle Fire Chief, Casey Cox, “first reports was told to be at the school, but the structure was located south of the school parking lot.”

Cox reported no injuries and no damage to surrounding structures.

“The fire was mostly contained to the attic area due to the homes construction,” said Cox. Adding that the ceiling was constructed with solid wood sheets, that acted as a floor to the attic area.

“This made fighting the fire difficult,” said Cox, “however, with that said the fire was unable to enter the main part of the home.”

As fire crews worked to get the fire under control, personal items were saved.

“Since the fire was primarily contained to the attic, crews were able to help save many personal items of the occupants,” Cox said. Fire crews quickly extinguished the flames with mutual aid from the Williams Fire Protection Agency.

“The Williams Ladder truck is a tremendous asset,” said Cox. “In situations like this we would usually punch holes in the roof, but with the roof structure compromised, and the home’s air conditioning unit on the roof, things could have been worse without the help of the ladder truck.”

Cox commented that the fire was under investigation, and he doesn’t suspect foul play or arson.<
