Late Night Structure Fire

By Chief Ira Brown, Jr
November 10, 2020

Eighth Ward VFD responded to a residential structure fire last night at 10:38pm in Robert. A distant neighbor just happened to walk outside, noticed the flames, and then alerted 9-1-1 that the house was fully involved. Thankfully no one was at home at the time of the fire.

The first due-out Engine arrived within five minutes of the callout. An additional engine, a pumper-tanker, and a service truck responded as well.

The structure was a total loss due to the advanced stage of the fire upon 9-1-1 notification.

Chief Brown thanks the hard work from Assistant Chief Wesley Perry, Captain David Byers, Captain Ryan Kuhn, Safety Officer Wayne Ratliff, and Firefighters Ted Mocklin, Lawrence Jenkins, Laine Taylor, and Albert Long. A special thanks goes out to Auxiliary Member Ginger Brown for providing rehab services with coffee and Power Aid, Acadian Ambulance Service, Tangipahoa Sheriff’s Office, Tangipahoa 9-1-1, and State Fire Marshal Investigators.
