Texas Home Destroyed by Fire

Posted on March 5th, 2010 No Comments

A home in Johnson County, Texas was completely destroyed by fire on February 25.

The driver of a truck traveling on Valley View Road near County Road 920 called 911 after observing heavy smoke billowing from a building. Four different fire departments responded to the call. Firefighters reported that the two story house was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived.

A strong wind fanned the flames as firefighters battled the inferno. A lack of fire hydrants in the area also hampered the work of rescuers. The building began to collapse in sections. Firefighters eventually declared the house a lost cause when everything had collapsed but a couple garage walls.

A properly working fire alarm and suppression system are of paramount importance in any building. Please contact the Austin fire alarm experts at Ace Fire Equipment today by calling 512-835-2020.
