Early Morning House Fire In Guymon
11/16/2009

Early Sunday morning at 2:26am, Guymon Firefighters were called to 609 N. Beaver at for a reported house fire. On Firefighters arrival, “heavy smoke and flames were coming from the roof on the back side of the house”, said Assistant Fire Chief Grant Wadley. Fire was located above the living room area of the home in the attic area. Heavy fire damage occurred before Firefighters gained control of the fire. Fire was brought under control in 30 minutes with Firefighters remaining on scene for approximately 2 additional hours longer locating hot spots and extinguishing any remaining smoldering areas in the ceiling and attic area.

Don Adams, owner and occupant, was home asleep at the time. Another family member in the home noticed the smell of smoke and recognized fire in the house. Smoke alarms were not in place at the time of the fire. Everyone in the home escaped without injury and were evaluated at the scene by Fire Department Paramedics.

“Cause of the fire is still under investigation”, Wadley stated. Estimated fire damage to the home is over $10,000 with most the loss in one area of the home. Firefighters responded with 2 engine companies, 2 command units, and an EMS unit to this fire. Guymon Firefighters were assisted by Guymon Police, Texas County Emergency Management, City Gas & Water department, Tri-County electric, and the local Red Cross chapter.
