Crews were called to the scene of a fully-involved structure fire in Cold Brook late Saturday evening. It happened around 6:30 p.m. at the intersection of Rose Valley Road and Main Street. Fire officials say a possible lightning storm on Route 8 caused the fire. Multiple agencies responded and stayed on standby, including Newport, Barneveld, Deerfield, and more fire departments. At the time, Poland Volunteer Firefighters had been marching in a parade and were returning back to the fire station when the call came through. When they arrived on the scene, the home was a fully engulfed structure fire with no access to the fire scene due to multiple downed power lines covering route 8 on both sides of the residence. The rescue effort quickly turned into an exterior battle only.
