[ARCHIVED] Overnight, Crews Battle Fire at Old Farm Home in Bethany Area


At 3:30 a.m., a caller reported to 911 that there was a fire in a bedroom and it was spreading through the house. The caller was the sole occupant of the residence and safety exited the home.

While en route to 7115 NW Kaiser road, firefighters saw a large column of black smoke and arrived to find heavy fire engulfing a two story farm house. Because of the rural location, firefighter used water tenders to transport water from a nearby hydrant and supply hose lines. The home sustained heavy damage and the cause of the fire remains under investigation, there is no damage estimate at this time.

Hillsboro Fire assisted operation with an engine and water tender. Kaiser road was temporarily closed between Germantown and Brugger road.

TVF&R reminds everyone to have and maintain working smoke alarms in your home. Additionally, if you encounter large or quickly growing fires, do not attempt to extinguish the fire yourself. Evacuate to a safe place away from the fire and call 911 immediately. For more safety tips, please visit
