A Page County Sheriff’s Deputy is credited for helping to extinguish a house fire early Friday morning. According to Sheriff Lyle Palmer, deputies responded to a report of a fire at 711 Oberlin Street in College Springs at around 12:55-a.m., Friday. A sheriff’s deputy who saw flames on the west side of the unoccupied structure used his patrol vehicles’ fire extinguisher to knock down the flames. The College Springs Fire Department arrived shortly thereafter and finished extinguishing the flames. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Palmer says the State Fire Marshal’s Office has been called in to conduct a further investigation.
