(Local News ~ 09/18/07)
A firefighter was injured Monday evening after a fire tore through the Elks Lodge in Mountain Home, completely gutting the building. Fire crews responded at about 9:45 p.m. to the blaze after flames were seen pouring out of windows on the south side of the building. The fire quickly spread through the ceiling and roof before firefighters drowned the flames, extinguishing the fire. A team of firefighters had entered the interior of the building to knock down the ceiling inside with long axes when a light fixture broke loose, hitting firefighter Brian Reed in the head, knocking him unconscious.
