~ Press release issued by Stanley Volunteer Fire Department
STANLEY, Sept. 4 — Fire Chief Terry A. Pettit reported that the Stanley Fire Department was called for a building fire Sunday morning at 11:20 a.m.at 272 Purdham Hill Road, east of Stanley. The building was fully ablaze when firefighters arrived, and the blaze was quickly spreading onto a nearby camper, pickup truck and a neighbor’s storage building.
Residents in the house attempted to extinguish the blaze, but it became too hot and they had to back away. Pettit stated that the fire started in the area where a generator was located and was being used to supply electricity; however, the exact cause has not been determined.
Chief Pettit stated that the building was owned by Lisa Good of Stanley, and the property was not insured.
The building is a total loss and estimated damage is around $15,000. A camper and pickup owned by Chris Campbell also suffered fire damage, along with the neighbor’s storage building. Chief Pettit stated the total damage from the fire could be as high as $30,000.
It took about 20 minutes to contain the fire, but volunteers remained on the scene for an hour.
Five units and 25 firefighters from the Stanley Fire Department responded to the Purdham Hill Road blaze. Page County EMS also responded, but no injuries were reported. The Page County Sheriff’s Department also assisted.
