Several area volunteer fire departments responded yesterday afternoon to a structure fire near Reilly Springs. 

At approximately 2:40 p.m., local firefighters received a call to a structure fire on County Road 2436. 

Stations 20 (County), 17 (Arbala), 13 (Miller Grove), 12 (Brinker), 7 (Pickton-Pine Forest), 3 (North Hopkins/ South Sulphur) and 2 (Como) all responded.

A 20-foot by 100-foot metal structure was engulfed, and endangering a two-story residence, according to Arbala VFD.

The VFDs were forced to pull metal off the structure to expose the scene to battle the fire, Arbala said. 

The teams fought the fire for two hours, the stations said. No damage befell the residence and no one was injured, the fire stations noted. 

The call was cleared at 4:50 p.m., according to Como VFD
