Firefighters tackle a house fire in Coldstream on Buchanan Road Thursday.

Coldstream home engulfed by flames

Firefighters called out to house on Buchanan Road late Thursday afternoon

A wave of flames ravaged a Coldstream home Thursday afternoon.

Fire quickly spread through the mobile home in the 8200 block of Buchanan Road just before 4 p.m.

“I was in my shop working on some cabinets when I went into the house quickly and then back out to the shop. I then came back outside and saw the smoke,” said the owner of the home, who has lived there 15 years.

The phone in the shop didn’t work so the man went down his long driveway to Buchanan Road where a passerby called 911.

As Coldstream and Lavintgton  firefighters arrived, flames tore through the mobile and an addition. The roof on the addition ultimately caved in on what was left of the structure.

Flames also spread into a wood pile and on to the grassy hillside nearby.

Neither the homeowner or his two dogs were injured during the incident.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
