Pulaski Fire Dept. report house blaze Monday night on Jackson Avenue

The Pulaski Fire Department responded to a house fire call Monday night just before midnight at 808 Jackson Avenue in Pulaski.

According to Fire Chief Robbie Kiser, fire fighters were on the scene in four minutes.

Kiser reported that the house was vacant and empty, and it is still unclear who the owners are.

“When we arrived, the house was totally engulfed in flames as the fire could be seen all across town,” Kiser said.

The department responded with two engines and 18 personnel. Draper Fire responded also with a tanker and 4 personnel, and Newbern Fire responded with the air truck to assist in filling air bottles. They also had 2 personnel respond.

“The steep terrain around the home and the roadway in front of the house didn’t help any with extinguishment,” Kiser noted.

REMSI, Pulaski Police Department and Appalachian Power personnel also assisted with the fire.

The scene was under control at 1:17 a.m. and the department was back in service at 3:40 a.m.

Kiser said the cause is still under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s office.

“Pulaski Fire Department would like to thank all the agencies for their assistance with the fire,” Kiser said.
