An update here on the fire that could have taken down a half-million dollar home at 1089 South Schooner Creek Road Sunday night. Firefighters arrived after reports of fire and smoke coming out an upstairs bedroom. Firefighters quickly doused the flames which many have been started by broken plumbing. A damaged baseboard heater is clearly visible in the second photo.
Residents were not home at the time. The fire was reported by passers-by noticing flames coming out an upper window. Schooner Creek Road was was closed while the fire was being knocked down and firefighters checked for extension anywhere in the walls, floor or ceiling.
