HOME LOST MONDAY


HOME LOST MONDAY A Rockdale home was gutted Monday morning when fire raced through this residence at 262 Oak Park Two. Fire Chief Warren Matous said an investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms determined the fire’s cause to be an energized curling iron laying on some clothes in the bathroom. Firefighters said Jackie Lacey and her two eight-year-old daughters fled the home and were not injured. The alarm was sounded at 9:26 a.m. and Rockdale VFD volunteers battled the blaze for over an hour. Above, Matous (R) and firefighter Johnny Stewart take a short break. The Thorndale Volunteer Fire Department responded to assist at the scene.
