Firefighters received the call for a structure fire Wednesday afternoon at a home on Tanana Loop in the Big D area. Initial information given to responders was that heavy smoke was coming from the structure. First arriving units found the road to the north of the home with zero visibility from the wind-driven smoke. The structure had flames coming from the upwind side of the structure with the 15 to 20 mph wind blowing smoke through the entire home. Chief Tim Castleberry with the Rural Deltana Volunteer Fire Department said the wind was an issue throughout the firefighting operation. The wind, “made it difficult to attack the fire and protect the exposures nearby,” he said.
