Early Wednesday morning around 6am Craggie Hope homeowners Cole and Amy Bruce awoke to the smell of smoke in their home. Just as Amy went into the kitchen to investigate, flames broke through the exterior glass door (it started in an enclosed porch on the side of the house) and quickly spread into the home. Both occupants of the home were able to safely get out of the home, one having to climb out the bedroom window because the fire spread so quickly. Kingston Springs Volunteer Firefighters on-scene just nine minutes later to find the home completely engulfed in fire. Pegram and White Bluff Volunteer Fire Departments were called in to assist with supplying water due to there being no fire hydrants in the area. The home was completely destroyed.
KSVFD would like to remind everyone to have and practice a ‘Fire Escape Plan’ at their home. Fire can spread very fast through a home and that’s not the time you want to figure out how to open your window, or find out that your window is stuck shut! Also, the KSVFD has free smoke alarms that they will install for free in your home if you do not have any! Visit www.ksvfd.com or call (615) 952-9965 for more information about the free smoke alarms.
