Residents get smoked out of Richmond Road home

Posted: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 9:59 pm

A cooking fire spread through a home on the 500 block of Richmond Road on Friday, June 7. According to the Wharton Volunteer Fire Department, a man had been cooking on the stove, and the stove roared until a fire lit up and spread from the kitchen down the hallway.

Wharton Fire Chief Anthony Abbott said that since the house had “ship lap” wood panels and a high ceiling, a light-colored smoke spread substantially through the house.
