Arson fire

Four teens are sought as suspects of starting  a two-alarm structure fire that destroyed a home on Falcon Court Thursday afternoon.

The original call was for a grass fire but it ignited a fence that set fire to the hour sending flames into the attic gutting the home.

Firefighters fought for over an hour against the flames, abandoning the fight on the roof when it began to collapse and eventually attacking the flames from a distance with the ladder truck's aerial hose.

No one was injured in the fire but there were tense moments when the roof began to collapse with fire fighters on top.  Everyone made it down and out of the home safe before the stone chimney caved in crashed down into the home.

It was a needless tragic fire but I was able to grab some good photos of some of the battle with the fire.
