Around 6 pm 3 to 4 firetrucks arrived to a house off
Bryant st. A small amount of smoke was coming out.
One hose i saw had a large cut in it and did no good.
I thought for sure they would put the fire out asap.

This happen at 6pm.
When i came back home around 10pm the flames went
high in the sky and you could see nothing left of
the nice house except the frame. I am sure there
is nothing left now.
4 Fire Trucks from 6pm to 10pm - and could not put out the fire.
Watch out for your house and have your water hose
ready.
sad but typical

I think people need to start watching our fire deparment and police department in action and film them with a camcorder. When you see a cop driving without his seatbelt on, or watch them act unprofessional with the public, film it! When the fire department are not fighting a fire worthy, film it! Put it on the local and eventually national news media and give Pocahontas the attention it deserves. Tell the stupid city council to stop being so sorry and stop abusing our tax dollars.

On Bryant between Dalton and Bland Street. Lawrence Bergman has those apartments at the bottom of the hill. This house was across from those apartments but one house up toward Dalton Street on the other side of the street from the apartments. Had a large screened in porch and a carport thing that was literally underneath part of the house. Heard the car under there was totally gone.

As for the huge "rip" in the hose, I'm really doubting that report from our resident "insider" here. From what I heard and saw it started small, the folks in there got out and the fire department was called, and by the time they got there it was going too fast to get it under control. Never heard a bit about a hose being ripped and even if it was there would've been 2 or 3 more firetrucks there with hoses that were fine. So either when they arrived it was out of control already or there was never a rip in the hose to begin with.

Some of you folks take the latest rumor or make something up and run on here and pretend it's gospel.

...meant to add those who are digging up crap here needs to find out who the family is that just lost their house and do something to help them out instead of pissing your lives away on this thing.

Go pick up some clothes, food, household items, and donate it to the folks who just lost their house.

I'm oh so proud to live in a city that doesn't respect anybody, what our fellow dipshit up there did not say was that this was a very old house not to say there is anything wrong with old houses but have you ever tried to put one out. Our fire department had it put out 3 times but the house had 2 roofs on it & there was fire in between them so everytime it came back it was worse. No it's easier to talk shit about the guys that went in risking their lives to save this house as appose to praising them for their efforts. Not every house can be saved but I know of a lot of house's that have been saved by PFD. As for you "wow" if you think it's so easy why are you not part of those volunteer's risking life & limbs for their community my guess would be you are either 1. LAZY 2. scared or 3. just plain worthless & would rather sit on your ass & complain rather than try to help or make a difference.

to the IDIOT. Have you ever been in a house that is on fire? I doubt that you have . Have you been on a fire dept? That would be no, because if you had then you would not have posted what you did. Sometimes by the time it is called in to the fire dept , the house is already to far gone for a fire dept to save it. Except for the full time fire men,the other volunters get paid a small amount to be at the fire. It is just a few dollars. Is that worth a life of a fire fighter . he or she is putting their life out to help you. Would you do the same. Are you going to go into a house on fire to look for someone in the house. That is what they do and i have seen them do it. So to the idiot . Until you have the balls to do their job ,quit talking out of your a@@.

Look yall. I went by when the firetrucks first arrived. I saw that house when it was just starting to catch on fire. It was a terrible thing! I cannot express the sadness i saw in the familys faces. Thier memories and everything are gone! there are things that these people had that can never be replaced. I went by this afternoon and the house was still smoking.....and out front someone was sitting thier just staring at the burnt rubbish that once was a home...this is a horrible thing yall. We should help these people somehow! As for the fireman that tried thier hardest to help i thank you. Yall did your best and we couldnt ask for more.

To the person that started this thread first, I think most folks were pissed off at "wow" and "Taxpayer" more than you.

House number and owner, not 100% sure. I lived in the apartments across the street for a short time, that was at 1102 Bryant. The house across the street was either 1101 or 1103 and the house that burned was one house up the street toward Dalton Street. There's not a house on that side of the street going the other way toward Bland.

It was still smoking this afternoon when we drove down Dalton.

We really need to find out who lost their home and how to help them ASAP. This is what this board and forum should be used for, not the bull a couple posters tried to start on here earlier.
