Jasper fire department called after the factDecember 27, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — The Jasper Volunteer Fire Department’s chief responded Thursday afternoon to check a home where there had been a midnight fire not immediately reported to authorities.
Fire Chief Kenny Hochgesang said the fire at the Jonathan and Tina Hasenour residence at 1053 Chad Ave. started on a back deck where a heat lamp had been placed inside a dog box.
Hochgesang said the dog box burned and flames scorched the deck and soffit on the back of the house. There was also smoke damage in the attic.
Tina Hasenour said she, her husband and two children were asleep but her cousin living with them, Robert Schuler, noticed the fire and extinguished it with a garden hose.
The Hasenours later learned of the incident and contacted Hochgesang, who checked for hot spots.
Hochgesang estimated damage at about $3,000 and said the family was lucky the situation ended well.
