KILLEEN, Texas (Dec. 4, 2022) – Killeen firefighters put out a fire in the 1200 block of north W. S. Young drive on Dec. 3. No one was home at the time of the fire, but seven residents are now displaced, and crews rescued one dog.


The fire broke out about 3:25p.m. and crews arrived within four minutes of being dispatched. Neighbors called in the fire after seeing smoke coming from the roof and firefighters also saw smoke in the rear and attic of the one-story home upon arrival. Three fire engines, one tower ladder truck, one heavy rescue truck, two ambulances, two Battalion Chiefs and two EMS captains were on scene, for a total of 23 personnel.


The fire was extinguished within 30 minutes of arrival on the scene and the home has been deemed uninhabitable. There were no injuries and the dog is okay. The Killeen Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management was also on scene and put the seven citizens who lived in the home in contact with the American Red Cross to assist with temporary accommodations.


The fire has been determined as accidental in nature and the cause of the fire is under investigation by personnel from the Killeen Fire Marshal’s Office.
