BROOK COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — Volunteer fire departments from the Franklin and Wellsburg communities were dispatched to a house fire in Brook County just off Washington Pike near Shangri-La Road Tuesday morning.
According to Franklin Community VFD officials, due to the fire’s remote location and lack of hydrants, the Brock Company Tanker Task Force was quickly activated with mutual aid from Bethany, Avella, and Hooverson Heights.
When Engine 7 arrived on scene, they found a two-story house on fire that was visible from the side of the street and immediately began trying to extinguish the fire.
Authorities say during the initial initial search, the two pets were able to be located and removed from the home.
Crews tried to control the fire for about two hours.
