FIREFIGHTERS SEARCH FOR VICTIM AFTER EARLY MORNING BLAZE

At 227am North Montgomery County Fire responded to assist San Jacinto County on a house fire with a victim trapped on Jones Road near the Montgomery/San Jacinto County line. Units arrived to find a single story wood frame structure fully involved with roof collapse. Firefighters attempted to enter the structure but were forced out by the heat. At this time they believe there is a victim, however, due to the extensive damage to the structure they are continuing the search. Water supply was an issue being the home is in a very rural area of the county, the nearest water supply was several miles away. Tankers from Shepherd, North Montgomery County, and Punkin-Evergreen Fire Departments shuttled water for several hours. The San Jacinto Fire Marshal is now on the scene along with the San Jacinto County Sheriffs Office.
