On January 30, 2014, the West Mount (NC) Fire Department was dispatched to a possible structure fire shortly before 4:00 p.m. at 4067 S. Old Carriage Road.
Fire Marshal unit C-107 arrived on scene first to find an outbuilding fully involved and reported a working incident. West Mount Engine 41 arrived and pulled two 1 3/4-inch lines for a defensive fire attack.
Firefighters were able to keep the flames away from the house, but the garage build was destroyed. Fire crews from West Mount, Coopers, and Nashville made a quick knockdown.
The fire was placed under control within 20 minutes. No one was injured. Nash County EMS, sheriffs, and County Fire Marshal were on the scene. Smoke from the fire could scene as far away as Battleboro.
The cause of the fire is pending investigation.
