Denton Fire Department Responds
to Halloween Night Fire
The Denton Fire Department responded to 122 Garner Street in town on Halloween Night for a reported house fire. First arriving units found a single story residence with flames appearing from the left and back of the residence, and heavy smoke showing from the entire house.

Crews made an aggressive interior attack and confined the fire to the room of origin. While crews were making the fire attack additional crews were also conducting a search of the residence and an all clear was given on both the primary (initial) and secondary searches. The fire was brought under control within ten minutes of the first arriving engine.

The home sustained quite a bit of smoke and water damage with the majority of the damage inside the fire room. The home next door also sustained some radiant heat damage to the vinyl siding. EMS was requested to the scene by DPD for an officer to receive some oxygen. No other injuries were reported and the officer was checked out and cleared.

The cause of the fire was investigated by Davidson County Fire Marshalls Office and Denton Fire Department and is still under investigation.

The Denton Fire Department received mutual aid response from South Davidson and Silver Valley Fire Departments, Davidson Co. EMS, Davidson Co. Fire Marshal and Denton Police Department.
