RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WVNS) — Multiple crews respond to a structure fire in Cool Ridge.
According to Raleigh County dispatch, a call came in at 2:50 p.m. about a house fire off of Shiloh Circle, near Weathered Ground Brewery.
Crews on the ground told 59News everyone made it out of the house before the garage was engulfed by the flames, which then spread to the house.
Multiple fire departments including Ghent Volunteer, Coal City, Beaver, Bradley, and Sophia all answered the call. As well as Jan Care and the American Red Cross.
While the cause of the fire is unknown, crews on the ground told 59News the same wind and weather conditions that attributed to different fires around the area this week, more than likely played a part in this situation.
“The wind was a big factor today, very windy day, as the wind was picking up, of course it adds fuel to the fire, and it made it very difficult, but the crews are doing a great job, again trying to be safe doing their best to knock it down.,” said Will Davis, the public information officer for the Beaver Volunteer Fire Department.
As of now, there are no reported injuries. This is still considered an ongoing investigation as they try to determine the cause of the fire. Stick with 59 News as we continue to bring you updates.
