Incident # 22-04443 - A Jonesville home was heavily damaged in an early morning fire Friday 10-June. At 00:22, 9-1-1 received several reports of flames coming from the roof of a house in the 400 block of Jonesville Ave. Engine 13 arrived minutes later advising the single story brick veneer structure was approximately 50% involved. The single occupant was located and had safely escaped the burning building. Firefighter-Paramedics deployed multiple handlines to the building. The fire had already breached the roof and was running the attic. Shortly after arrival, fire was venting from all openings at the eaves. Crews had the fire contained within 30 minutes and were on the scene for four hours performing overhaul. According to the occupant, he had been smoking earlier and returned to the bedroom to find the entire room in flames. About 70% of the exterior of the building was still standing and some items on the west end of the building were salvagal, but the home, including the interior, suffered substantial damage. Water supply was conducted with Tenders. The Red Cross is assisting the occupant.
