Bracey fire

Lake Gaston Volunteer Fire Department was one of three volunteer stations dispatched to a Jan. 7 structure fire in the Tanglewood Shores subdivision in Bracey. 

La Crosse and South Hill volunteer fire departments also responded, along with Southside Rescue. 

According to a South Hill VFD Facebook post, "Units arrived on scene to find a detached shed and carport fully involved with heavy smoke coming from the eves of the home. Crews quickly went to work and the fire was marked under control at 4:48 PM.

"Crews remained on scene for an additional two hours completing salvage and overhaul. Fortunately there were no injuries reported although the fire did displace the homeowner."
