There were no injuries in a house fire that occurred in the early morning hours on May 2 in Tyrone.

Deputy Fire Chief Tom Bartlett said Fayette County Fire and Emergency Services units responded to a residential fire at 515 Laurel Circle.

All residents were able to evacuate at the time of the fire and no injuries were reported, Bartlett said.

“The fire units were dispatched at 2:03 a.m. and arrived on the scene at 2:09 a.m.,” Bartlett said. “The first arriving truck found a split level residence well involved in fire on two sides with fire spreading into the attic space.”

Bartlett said the fire was under control at 2:31 a.m., with units remaining on the scene, conducting an overhaul of the fire area until 6:45 a.m.

In addition to the damage to the residence, two cars parked in the driveway were also damaged, said Bartlett.

“The circumstances of the fire are not suspicious and the cause is currently under investigation,” Bartlett noted.

Bartlett said there are no hydrants in the area, resulting in three Fayette County tankers being used to supply the water.
