A house fire on Goldspring Place in Promontory Heights was apparently a fast and furious blaze, according to neighbours contacted by The Progress.
“I didn’t see much,” neighbour Tammy Bouwman said. “I just heard the sirens and then came out and looked and saw the smoke.
Bouwman said she was hardly out the door when firefighters had the road closed off.
“They were obviously on top of things,” she said, about the firefighters.
Another neighbour said she also didn’t see much, except the house fully ablaze when she returned home, and seemingly destroyed within the next 15 minutes.
Another neighbour was 500 miles away, returning from vacation, when he got the bad news from his brother. He said he didn’t know if his house had suffered any fire or water damage.
Fire officials were still at the scene at press time, and couldn’t be reached for comment.
One person from the burning house was reportedly treated for smoke inhalation.
The fire at 5306 Goldspring Place was reported just before noon Monday.
