WFR responded to a house fire at 122 N Lake Dr at 1840 on Tuesday, September 30. Upon arrival found a residence that had fire on the outside of the home burning into the structure, but an attentive neighbor was spraying water from a garden hose on it and had it pretty well out. Firefighters tore off the siding to expose the inner structure to completely extinguish the fire quickly. The cause is under investigation but believed to start from an ash tray on the deck against the side of the home. No one was home at the time and no injuries were reported. The strong winds were also a factor in the fire. Damage was minimal. BC McElhany.
