A long-time Mountain Top volunteer firefighter lost his home to a fire on the morning of Friday, November 27th.
Chris Krout, Lieutenant and Training Officer for the Wright Township Fire Department, was en route with his family to North Carolina, when he received the call that his own home was on fire.
The home at 491 South Main Road was completely destroyed in the blaze, along with several vehicles and a camper. Krout and his family had lived at the home for approximately ten years.
The State Fire Marshall investigated the cause of the fire, but no official report has yet been released.
Krout has been a member of the Wright Township Fire Department since 2001, according to Randy Case, a volunteer firefighter with the Department who also serves as its President.
