It didn’t take long for firefighters with the La Follette Fire Department to knock down a house fire Tuesday night.

Members of the Campbell County EMS, LFD, La Follette Police Department and La Follette Utility Department responded to a house fire at 1340 Loop Road.

However, the roughly five-minute fire did considerable damage to the structure according to Jimmy Pack, assistant fire chief with the LFD.  The fire to the home, across from the old Ford Town Baptist Church, shut down Loop Road from just before 9 pm to around 10:30 pm.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/10/2018-6AM-PHOTOS COURTESY OF LFD ASSISTANT FIRE CHIEF JIMMY PACK )
