70 West Fire Troops were called out to Northshore Drive this afternoon for the report of a structure fire.
Arriving units quickly announced that the house was on fire. The structure was an older, small, 2 story house.
Witnesses at the scene told me that the house was unoccupied at the time the fire began. They also said that someone was burning leaves on the property at the time the fire began.
Piney Fire Department brought firefighters, trucks and gear to assist.
LifeNet dispatched an Ambulance Crew for standby duty. No injuries were reported as far as I know.
The Garland County Sheriff’s Patrol responded and assisted as necessary.
This section of road was closed for at least 2 hours.
