Mobile Home Fire on Pentas St.
Monday morning the Pinetta Volunteer Fire Department and Madison Fire Rescue were called out to a mobile home fire located on pentas St. off Rocky Ford Rd. The tenant was not home at the time of the fire. Sargent Johnson, with the Madison Sheriff’s Department, was the first to arrive at the scene and found a small area on the back of the home and on the ground on fire and the home was filled with smoke. Sargent Johnson took measures to control the fire until fire crews could arrive.
When fire crews arrived they quickly extinguished the fire. The home was opened and an exhaust fan was used to remove the smoke from the inside. Fire crews removed the outer siding from the home to insure the fire was not live inside the walls.
At the time of this story the cause of the fire was not known. The State Fire Marshall was called in to investigate. Madison EMS and Tri-County Electric also responded.
