Fire engulfs two-story log home

Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, 7:27 p.m.
 

A two-story log home sustained serious damage Monday afternoon in a Fayette County blaze that may have started in the basement.

Saltlick Township Volunteer Fire Department Chief Max Gales said the Millerstown Road home was fully engulfed with flames shooting out of the roof upon firefighters' arrival around 1:30 p.m. Two people were home at the time, but were not injured, he said.

“They were able to get out,” Gales said.

The all-wood structure made it tough to put out the fire, he said. About six fire departments assisted Saltlick firefighters until the blaze was under control at about 6 p.m.

“It was burning pretty good,” Gales said.

No one was injured. A state police fire marshal is investigating the cause.
