Just after 1:45 a.m. Caney Creek Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fie in the 17000 block of Red Leaf near Leafy. This was not the first dispatch to that location. Earlier they were sent to the same place for an illegal burn which had burned the grass to the west of the garage that was under construction.
The fire was quickly brought under control after some tense moments for the neighbors. As they waited for fire equipment to arrive the fire crept dangerously close to their large trucks and home which was split by a narrow strip of dry woods
Thinking it was a residential fire Cut and Shoot and River Plantation Fire Departments were also dispatched.
The Montgomery County Fire Marshal will be investigating.
The structure was a total loss.
