SHOTTSVILLE — Both the Shottsville and Byrd fire departments were called to a major emergency situation during the stormy conditions that occurred on the night of Saturday, July 30.
Shottsville Fire Department was the first to arrive on the scene to respond to the fire located on County Highway 56 at the facility operated by the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company of Kinder Morgan.
“We just saw a big ball of fire on top of one of the buildings,” said Shottsville Fire Chief Jeff Williams.
Williams stated the department, who also received help from the Byrd and Hamilton fire departments, had to wait for safety protocols at the gas facility to be completed before extinguishing the fire.
