On the early afternoon of February 21, 2013, the homeowner of this Pond House Road home called the FD and reported his house was on fire. On arrival of the FD, heavy fire was showing from the rear of the house. Chief Jillson quickly ordered mutual aid tankers to the scene because there are no hydrants in the area. Firefighters couldn’t make entry on side 2 because of an electrical line burning but as they attempted to make entry on side 3, they encountered a dog inside, grabbed him and brought him to safety. With the fire rapidly progressing, firefighters were forced to exit the building and fight the fire from the exterior. It took about an hour to bring the fire under control. No injuries were reported.
