No injuries in two separate fires: Fire marshal will investigate cause of both blazes
No one was injured in a house fire at 408 J W Morgan Way that began around 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Brookhaven Fire Chief Tony Weeks said people in the house got out as soon as they saw fire avoiding any injuries. The cause or other circumstances surrounding the fire are not yet known. The structure is still standing, but the extent of the damage is unknown at this point.
Weeks said his department would investigate the blaze today. The State Fire Marshal is expected to arrive later today to investigate as well.
This was the second house fire in Brookhaven Wednesday, with the first about 12 hours earlier at 4 a.m. at 235 Roger’s Circle. It was a vacant rental house and no one was hurt, Weeks said. Weeks said the Fire Marshal was already coming to Brookhaven to investigate the cause of the 4 a.m. fire, so he could look into the most recent house fire as well.
The station also responded to a grass fire earlier in the day Wednesday, and later that evening around 7 p.m. firefighters responded to another grass fire near the interstate.
