FARMVILLE — A Wednesday night fire badly damaged a residence on Griffin Boulevard but there were no injuries and firefighters lived up to their name in time to save much of the home, returning to the scene Thursday morning to extinguish a rekindling.
“Nobody was hurt. Everybody got out,” Farmville Fire Chief Andrew Goss told The Herald Thursday morning. “The damage to their property—the back side bedroom, storage and porch are heavily damaged but crews were able to stop the fire from spreading to any other rooms and we placed salvage covers on all their property in order to keep things dry and safeguard what property they had.”
Chief Goss said the origin of the fire has not been determined. “I don’t know what caused it yet,” he said.
