Antioch house fire rekindles overnight

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters worked to douse a fire that rekindled early Saturday morning at a home in Antioch.

The fire originally sparked around 6 p.m. Friday at a home in the 4100 block of Park Trail Point. Firefighters were finished fighting the fire by 9 p.m. Friday.

The blaze rekindled around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Crews were worked throughout the morning to ensure all hotspots were out.

The fire Chief told News 2 it's challenging to fight fires in the cold weather because the water coming from the hoses will steam and resemble smoke.

The Chief added that the temperature of water coming from a hose is around 40 degrees. Saturday morning's outdoor temperatures read around 18 degrees when they were fighting the rekindle.

He added that in rekindle situations, just a small ember and an adequate amount of time can get a blaze going again.

Two women were inside the home at the time of the initial fire and left to stay with family when the fire flared back up.

Power had been cut to the home.

It wasn't clear what sparked the initial fire.
