On March 31, 2019 at 10:15 p.m., Pulaski Fire Department received a call for a house fire at 125 Oak Lane in the Town of Pulaski.
The fire department responded and the first engine arrived four minutes later at 10:19 p.m. and found heavy fire involvement at the rear of the house.
Draper Fire Department was also called for an engine and manpower along with Newbern Fire Department with an Air Truck.
The occupants were able to escape on their own and fire department personnel quickly knocked the fire down, then checked for any fire extension in hidden spaces and extinguished all hot spots.
The Fire Marshal then investigated and found the start was from the wood stove and chimney area of the house.
Pulaski Fire Department responded with two engines and a utility truck with 26 personnel, Draper responded with a tanker and 5 personnel, and Newbern responded with the Air Truck and 2 personnel. REMSI and Pulaski Police Department also responded.
Moderate damage was done to the back of the house, but very little damage was done to the main living part of the house. The owner/occupants were displaced and resided with family members for the night.
Fire department units cleared up just before midnight and were back in service.
