ARGO — The Argo Fire Department responded to a reported house fire located on Meadow Run Drive, Friday, September 17, around 5:30 a.m.
According to the Argo Fire Department, the house was fully ablaze when firefighters arrived on the scene. Reports state there were no injuries and the home occupants and their pets were out of the building.
Argo Fire Department faced a problem; there wasn’t enough water to control the fire due to the lack of fire hydrants in the area. In response, Trussville Fire and Rescue and other surrounding fire departments began shuttling water in their trucks from the closest fire hydrant and pumping it into Argo’s firetrucks.
With the help of Trussville Fire and rescue and other surrounding fire departments, Argo Fire Department managed to contain the fire; unfortunately, the house was a complete loss.
The cause of the fire is still unknown. The Argo Fire Department is investigating the fire.
