Fire Damages Rural Odin Home

June 9, 2017

Fire has damaged a rural Odin home.

Odin Fire Chief Greg Smith says smoke was coming out the vents and eves of the David and Bonnie Holland home at 2441 Texas Road when they arrived on the scene Thursday afternoon. He reports they were able to quickly knock down the fire that was confined to the living room. Firemen took down the ceiling over the living room and kitchen to make sure the fire had not spread into the attic. Smith says fortunately there was very little fire in the attic.

Smith says the fire appears to have started near a couch that had a number of electrical cords running behind it. A State Deputy Fire Marshal will review the scene on Friday to try and further determine the cause.

Smith reports there was heavy fire and smoke damage to the living room and smoke damage to the rest of the home.

The Holland’s were not at home at the time the fire began. A neighbor spotted the smoke and called the fire department.

Odin Firemen were assisted at the scene by Salem, Centralia District, and Sandoval Firemen who all brought manpower and tanker trucks to the scene. As a result, an adequate water supply was not a problem.

The fire call came in at 2:12 Thursday afternoon. Firemen were on the scene for about two hours.
