Firefighters Wage War To Save Greenbrier Home

GREENBRIER TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Greenbrier home is still standing and largely intact thanks to the efforts of four local fire departments that waged war to save the home.

When firefighters from Greenbrier, Ridgetop, Springfield and White House  Volunteer Community arrived, the home’s attached garage and a wooded area behind the home was engulfed in flames.

The call went out around 8:50 PM Friday evening and by 9:10 pm the fire was largely out and mostly contained to the garage of the home.The fire was able to breach a utility room and a bathroom inside the home but no further. According to Captain James Elmore with the Greenbrier Fire Department, a firewall between the garage and the home helped slow the fire’s progress into the home. Captain Elmore estimated that at least 85% of the home, located on Pauline Dr. MAP, was saved.

Greenbrier Mayor Bonnette Dawson, who lives nearby, offered comfort to the residents as firefighters battled the blaze.

No injuries were reported in the fire and a family dog was removed unharmed, however, a second dog was lost and at last report, the disposition of a third dog is still unknown.

The Robertson County Emergency Management Agency, Robertson County EMS and the Greenbrier Police Department were also on scene to assist the residents and firefighters.

There was no word on a cause of the fire, if more information becomes available we will bring it to you.
