A Forest couple has little left other than their lives after a fire last night destroyed their home. Crews were called out around 6:00 p.m. to the home on Declaration Terrace near Poplar Forest Golf Course. More than a dozen units responded, but they were unable to save the home. There are no injuries reported.
From the Forest Volunteer Fire Department Facebook page: Company 5 responded to a first due working house fire this evening. Company 1 (Bedford), Company 12 (Brookville-Timberlake), Medic 145, County 16, County 1, County 10, and Campbell County Rescue Squad were on scene as well. Fantastic work by all on an extremely advanced fire. Everyone was able to make it out of the structure safely.
