Fire Crews Use Drone To Help Battle House Fire Near Kindred
It took fire crews about three hours to battle a house fire near Kindred, North Dakota on the morning of April 6th, 2019 because responders were unable to get inside.
KVRR reports Kindred Fire Chief Rich Schock says the roof had collapsed and the walls were bulging making it unsafe for firefighters to enter Saturday.
Officials say the Kindred, Horace, Davenport and Leonard fire crews used a Cass County Sheriff’s drone to get an aerial view of the fire and attack the hot spots. The home is located on the east side of the Bison View Estates housing development on Highway 46, just west of Kindred.
One person was home and escaped safely. Other family members were out of town. The state Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause.
