CFR arrived to find two small sheds, a fence, and vehicle on fire that was extending to two residential structures. Access to one residential structure was restricted due to the property being boarded up. Occupants were able to safely evacuate the other residential structure. Two dogs and several chickens had been safely removed from harms way prior to CFR’s arrival.

The estimated damage due to the fire is unknown. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
