Team Effort By Multiple Agency Firefighters Save Cross Plains Home
CROSS PLAINS TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Area firefighters leaped into action Thursday evening after a Cross Plains home ignited.
The combination of an alert neighbor who reported the fire and quick action by Firefighters from Cross Plains, Orlinda, and White House Community, meant that the home is still standing this evening.
The call went out around 10 pm that a home in the 8000 block of Hwy 25 had ignited. The home is located on Hwy 25 about 3/4 of a mile from I-65.
According to Cross Plains Fire Chief Tommy Jackson, the fire appeared to have started in the bathroom and moved into the ceiling and to the roof. Jackson said Firefighters made a good stop, saving 2/3rds of the home.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation but there were no immediate signs of arson, Jackson said. The home was rented but unoccupied at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported.
It’s a great outcome for our local first responders who receive little accolades for their heroic efforts to save lives and property every day.
The Cross Plains Fire Department, the White Community Volunteer Fire Department, the Orlinda Fire Department, Robertson County EMS, the Robertson County Emergency Management Agency, and the Robertson County Sheriff’s Office all responded to the call.
