MPSD responds to house fire

Posted

On Monday, March 7at approximately 12:37 p.m., the Mexico Public Safety Department responded to Bougainville Drive in reference to a fire.  Responding personnel found a house with an attached carport and storage area.  

The carport and storage area were completely engulfed in flame with the fire moving into the kitchen of the home. The fire was contained and extinguished in those areas with the carport and storage area being completely destroyed and the kitchen suffering significant fire damage.  The rest of the home had serious heat damage.  

Personnel found four small dogs and two cats dead in the home.

The residents indicated they had been having some electrical issues in the carport, storage and kitchen areas. They stated they thought they smelled something burning and about a half hour later found flames entering the home from the carport. They managed to get all the people and one pet out before conditions became too dangerous.  

No people were injured during the incident.
