WALTON COUNTY FIRE RESCUE EXTINGUISHES RESIDENTIAL FIRE IN FREEPORT

Freeport, FL— Firefighters respond to a residential fire on McCloud Road and discover a partially engulfed structure, a second structure on the ground and a fully engulfed vehicle nearby.

 

Within minutes of being dispatched at 10:03 PM on December 10, Walton County Fire Rescue crews along with Eglin Airforce Base Fire Department’s crew from Site C6 arrived on scene and discovered the fire encompassing a portion of the mobile home and a nearby vehicle, as well as a storage trailer that had already collapsed to the ground. Crews quickly jumped into action and were able to knock down the heavy flames. Fortunately, all residents made it out of the home safely and no major injuries were reported.

 

The State Fire Marshals Office is conducting an investigation into the cause of the fire.

Permanent Road Closure for Section of Moore Road

Beginning Monday morning on December 11, 2017, the section of Moore Road between South Park Avenue and Taylor Road will be permanently closed to through traffic. This closure will allow the construction of two cul-de-sacs on Moore Road. Work on this project should be completed in two to three months, depending upon the weather. For those motorists who previously used this section of Moore Road as a shortcut, you will now be required to use the 4-way stop at the intersection of South Park Avenue and Taylor Road to travel through this area. Any questions or concerns can be directed to the Public Works Department at 615-3810.

EMA Weather Outlook UPDATE 3pm

 

Main Changes: The chance of a rain/snow mix or brief changeover to snow has been added to the inland FL Panhandle (northern Walton & NW Holmes counties) early Saturday morning.
Overview: The potential still exists for a brief period of a rain/snow mix or snow tonight across southeast Alabama and portions of southwest Georgia overnight through the early morning on Saturday. With the warm ground and marginal air temperatures, little to no accumulation is expected. The main impact to watch for will be slick spots on any elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.
Confidence: This event is highly dependent on how quickly the colder air moves in and the precipitation moves out of the area – there is still time for minor changes to the timing of the cold air/precipitation.  Please do not focus too much on the exact rain vs. rain/snow mix area, but keep up to date with the latest forecast.

Houston County Road Closure
