Two homes damaged in residential fire

August 1, 2012

A fire swept north along Grace Street in Poteau Wednesday afternoon damaging two homes and endangering others.

The residents of the 700 block of Grace Street were alerted to a shed fire that quickly turned worse Wednesday afternoon.
The blaze is under investigation but neighbors claim they heard an explosion followed by flames. The fire began in a shed in the back yard of a residence, spread to the home then to a neighboring home on the north side. Two other homes were endangered by the flames and homeowners spent the afternoon watering down their roofs in hopes of saving their homes.
The Poteau Fire Department was able to contain the blaze but spent several hours on scene ensuring no further fires.
