Pulaski home damaged by fire




A Dora Highway home was damaged, but not destroyed, by fire Wednesday.

Chief Bill Webb with Pulaski Police Department said the first units to arrive on the scene of the 6:19 p.m. blaze found dark smoke pouring from the front door and windows. Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the interior of the residence, at 1002 Dora Highway.

Webb said heat and smoke damage inside the house was “pretty heavy,” but the house is not considered a total loss. A dollar estimate for the damage has not yet been determined, nor has the cause of the fire.

Pulaski Fire Marshal Todd Garwood is investigating to determine what sparked the blaze.

Webb said Sharon Mitchell Atsatt, who was the only person home when firefighters arrived on the scene, owns the home. He said Atsatt was transported to the hospital, possibly for treatment of smoke inhalation, but she has since been released.

Pulaski Fire Department responded with three pieces of equipment and 23 personnel. Draper Volunteer Fire Department, REMSI and Pulaski Police Department assisted.

Webb said the department was back in service at 8:57 p.m., but they did not clear the scene until 9:28.
