Capital City Fire/Rescue

Structure fire

@1753 Capital city fire rescue responded to a reported structure fire at the 17000 block of Point Lena Loop road. On arrival found a single story residential house that was mostly engulfed in fire. Flames were coming out of 3 of the 4 sides of the house. The homeowner met us at the road and stated no one was inside the house. Hose lines were stretched to the outside of the house. We started a defensive mode of attack by applying water to the interior of the house from the outside. We did not enter the building due to unsafe building conditions. It took approximately 45 minutes to control the fire. The fire was under control at 6:45pm. We performed spot fire extinguishment until all fires were extinguished. The house has been declared a total loss. According to the homeowner the house was valued at &90,000 and contents at $15,000 The Fire Marshal’s office is currently investigating the cause of the fire and will update with any new information.
