Hennessey Firefighters arrived at flames from the roof on the north side of the single-story home. Hennessey Police Chief Aaron Pitts was the first on the scene and helped firefighters with hoses until the rest of the trucks arrived. Firefighters from Dover and Waukomis were called in for assistance.
Several Hennessey Firefighters and their equipment responded directly from another fire SE of Hennessey on its second day. Many of the men from all the departments that responded have had little sleep in the last 2 days with the recent fires.
The home, located two south of Hennessey and 2.5 miles west, owned by Brent and Debbie Hardin, sustained damage to the kitchen and parts of the living room, and part of the attic.
