ROSWELL-A Roswell family’s landscaping business is completely destroyed after a fire consumed the house which was storing the family’s equipment.
“We had to then back off and protect the front structure until we could get the power company to come in,” Shannon said.
That delay from the electric company, he said, is what allowed the fire to grow and ultimately destroy the house, which sits on the rear of the lot next to a bigger house.
David Olague’s father lives in that bigger house. Olague said $13,000 worth of landscaping equipment his family uses to make money is destroyed.
Investigators were just arriving on scene at time of interview, Shannon said, and would soon begin investigating what caused the fire.
No injuries were reported.
