House Fire On Brownsville Road

MVFD member Brian Hope

Around 1:15 Saturday afternoon, Morgantown Volunteer Fire Department and Fourth District Volunteer Fire Departement responded to a possible structure fire at 2707 Brownsville Road.  Upon arriving, firemen found heavy smoke coming from the upstairs of the house.  The occupants of the house were all out of the house uninjured when the fire departments arrived on the scene.  The fireman made entry, and the fire was quickly extinguished.

Alana Chapman said she rents the house from Kelly Chapman and has two children who live with her.  The six-year-old and eight-year-old were home with a family friend when the fire started.  According to Doug Weathers, Morgantown fireman, "There is a lot of smoke damage in two second story bedrooms."  He said the fire was  mostly contained to one bedroom.
