Fire blazes through Alcorn Road property
July 14, 2016
A fire broke out on a piece of property on Alcorn Road this afternoon.
Assistant Fire Chief Bill Lawry said there are no leads on the fire's origin, though, more than four fire trucks and 10 firefighters arrived to put out that fire spread to trees, a fence, brush and a shed on the property.
"We were just trying to get it under control," Lawry said. "As you can see, it came all along the fence, but we can't tell which way it came from."
The cause of the fire is under investigation. No one was injured.
Jessica Nuckolls, a co-property owner, arrived shortly after the fire was extinguished. She and her family share the property with the Ghiglia family, though, Nuckolls was the only owner to arrive. "I don't know who called it in," Nuckolls said, "but I'm very thankful because if it would have caught the roof of this (building), it would've been very bad."
