CARLTON – Firefighters from several fire departments are on scene at a house fire on Kent Road. The house is fully engulfed with flames and firefighters are struggling to put it out due to windy conditions.

The house is owned by Tim and Terry Keller. They live at 1830 Kent Rd., next door to the Carlton Fire Station. Firefighters were dispatched at about 12:30 p.m.

Firefighters from throughout the county as well as from Hamlin responded to the call.

Carlton firefighters Ed Cooper and Ben Diltz direct water on the back of the house. The Albion ladder truck gets in position to spray water from up high.

The dark smoke from the blaze can be seen from miles away.

One firefighter suffered a muscle sprain in his knee and was taken from the scene by ambulance.
