Home Destroyed by Fire

November 9, 2006, at about 9:16am, neighbors spotted smoke coming from a home at 11608 Love Road and called 9-1-1. Firefighters arrived to find the home was charged with smoke and when it was ventilated, the fire took over. Deputy Chief Kirk Wilson was Incident Command and immediately called for a MABAS Box 12; it would reach the 4th alarm for engines and manpower before the day was over. The OSFM Fire Investigator and the MABAS Fire Investigation Team investigated the fire scene. The fire is under investigation and the cause is undetermined at this time.
