3-alarm fire destroys home in Oak Hill

Posted on August 17th, 2010 No Comments

An Oak Hill family’s home was destroyed Friday after catching fire.  Oak Hill firefighters arrived at the home just west of Oak Hill after a three-alarm fire was reported.

By the time fire crews arrived at the house, the fire had reached the roof of the 4,000 square foot home.  Winds pushed fire and smoke throughout the house very quickly, making it difficult for firefighters to put out the fire.  Also, low water pressure from the fire hydrants nearby led crews to call for tankers of water.

Fortunately, none of the residents were in the home when the fire started and no one was injured from the fire.  Total damages to the house are estimated to be around $650,000.

Investigators are trying to determine what caused the fire.
