Fire destroys Kilmarnock home

by Madison White Franks 

KILMARNOCK—A house at 15860 Mary Ball Road in Kilmarnock is believed to be a total loss following a fire Saturday night that stretched into the early morning hours of Sunday.

At approximately 9:25 p.m. on August 19, a call came into Lancaster dispatch reporting a house fire that was fully involved.

At the time of the fire, no one was in the home, the residence of Amir Rasoul, said chief Roy Hall.

During a routine search throughout the house, a firefighter found and saved a young pit bull, he said. The Kilmarnock-Lancaster Rescue Squad gave the dog oxygen then the dog was taken to the Lancaster Animal Shelter and is “good to go,” he said.

The house is a total loss and has been condemned, according to Hall. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
