The West Shelby Volunteer Fire Department (WSVFD) responded to a 9-1-1 call by a passerby of a house fire on County Road 1211 on Friday, December 26, 2014 at 10:34am.
When the firemen arrived at the residence of Vicky Campbell the mobile home was engulfed in flames. Several fire trucks arrived on scene and firemen actively worked to extinguish the fire. Some flames had spread beyond the boundaries of the home, but the firemen were able to prevent its further spread.
The house was a total loss and according to WSVFD Chief Jerryl Adams the fire appeared to have been electrical in origin. The firemen cleared the scene and returned to the station at 12:40pm.
The firemen once again were dispatched to the scene when the house flamed up again at 1:11pm and they returned to the station again at 1:45pm
Campbell was not home at the time of the fire as she has been staying with relatives while dealing with a seasonal illness.
