Fire Destroys Home on SW Ladd Hill Road Outside Sherwood

IMG_6041

Just after 5p.m. this evening, a person driving in the 30000 block of  SW Ladd Hill Road reported a house on fire with fire coming out of windows and through the roof. When firefighters first arrived, there were significant flames burning in the two-story home. Firefighters had to shuttle water to the scene since there were no nearby hydrants. 


Firefighters defensively fought the fire from the outside for about 90 minutes before gaining control. During that time, they were not able to safely search the home. Fortunately, the man renting the home eventually arrived to confirm that he was the only resident, with the exception of his cat who has not yet been located.


In addition to the water supply challenges, firefighters contended with an arcing power line and limited access with a creek just behind the home.


The cause of the fire has not yet been determined and the home did not contain a residential fire sprinkler system.
