Crews respond to structure fire in White Hall

Cindy Porter watched nervously as the flames from a brush fire grew closer to her home on Underwood Road in Garlands Crossing April 12

Valley Volunteer Fire Department Lieutenant Waggamon says that the fire started from someone throwing a lit cigarette into the mulch outside the hotel. "Fire follows every little void and it follows every little track".

Crews put out the blaze after about 40 minutes, and the house was heavily damaged by fire, smoke and water, Chittum said.

Floyd County Emergency Management tells WHAS11 that the fire is being fueled in part by one thing. They cut a hole in the side of the house to get the mattress out.

Two firefighters climbed into the basket of a ladder truck from the Dwight Fire Protection District.

"Most fire incidents are successfully extinguished by the first attending crews, with re-inspections in the hours, or even days after the initial attendance used for incidents of a more complex nature".
