At first there were reports of two people entrapped in the house. Rescue crews made entry through a window into the burning house and performed a dangerous operation called VES (vent enter search). No victims were located and the VES operation determined there were no persons in the house.

“What was forming to be a terrible day for responders ended with good news of no injuries and no fatalities,” said New Albany Fire Department (NAFD) Chief Mark Whiteside.

Volunteer fire departments from West Union, Myrtle, Pinedale and the NAFD’s Rescue One Unit responded to the scene. An ambulance and EMS crew from Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County were on site as were officers of the Union Count Sheriff’s Department.

Unfortunately, the house and all of its contents were considered a total loss.
