So far there has been almost no official information released about a house fire on Egg Farm Road on June 2. An investigation underway.

According to a Nextdoor Kenwood post by the homeowner on June 3, “he and his pet cat are safe; however, the house suffered major damage.”

Over a dozen emergency and sheriff vehicles responded to the blaze, which became visible throughout the area when firefighters chopped a hole in the roof to fight the fire. A pillar of fire was followed by a taller smoke plume that generated mistaken reports that the fire was at a nearby restaurant.
