Update: At about 2:45 p.m. on Saturday multiple agencies were dispatched to a house on fire on Wickwine Lane. Since it was a clear day, the smoke was visible from a good portion of of the south side of the county. Units were on the scene in less than five minutes, and a single family home was involved. Due to the heavy volume of fire, the fire was knocked down from the outside. Over 40 firefighters were on the scene.

There were no injuries to firefighters or civilians, but two cats were found dead by firefighters after getting the fire under control. The family is being assisted by the American Red Cross and the home is deemed a total loss. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
