Thursday morning, (March 9th) around 11 AM, the Hennessey Fire Department responded to a house fire at 6350 S. Mitchell Road, owned by Autumn and Tony Blackburn.  Firefighters arrived to find the top story of the residence engulfed in flames. 

Hennessey Fire requested help from Dover and they assisted with a water tanker and several firefighters.  There is no fire hydrant in that mile section of S. Mitchell Rd so they were shuttling water from about a mile away. 

There was no one home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries.  

Tony Blackburn said, “I got a notification from my security system that the temperature in one of the bedrooms was 120 degrees.” The cause of the fire is still under investigation but is thought to have started with wiring near the furnace near the center of the house.  

The house is a total loss and they lost everything.  If you would like to help you can make a tax-deductible donation at Community State Bank to the Community Action Team in the care of “The Blackburn’s.”  Contact Jimmy Berkenbile with questions at 405-853-5071

Hennessey Fire was assisted by Hennessey Police, Dover Fire, Kingfisher County Emergency Management, and Kingfisher County Sheriff Dept.  Fire crews left the premises at 4 PM.
