House fire in Harlan causes firefighters to be pulled due to possible roof collapse

On Wednesday afternoon November 30, 2022 at approximately 12:25pm, multiple calls came into Harlan City Police Department about a house on fire located above the Cash Savers Store.

A Harlan City Police unit then advised the fire was on South Main Street and not near the business itself.

Fire Chief Billings arrived on scene and established South Main Command at 12:28pm. Engines 3 and 4 arrived on scene with crews making an interior attack, but eventually had to be pulled from the structure due to an imminent roof collapse. Chief Billings also tells us that the high winds on Wednesday accelerated the fire.

There was a woman living in the home, but she was able to get out safely.

No injuries were reported during the incident, but the home is a total loss.
