The Ryan and Nancy Laughery residence at 108 Penny Lane, Dayton, suffered smoke and water damage, plus damage caused by firefighters gaining access to interior ceilings and roof spaces last Sunday night. Fire units from Districts 2 and 3 responded to the 7:06 p.m. call when a fireplace fire apparently ignited interior portions of the Laughery's residence. Firefighters worked for two hours to contain and extinguish the fire, which had moved inside the ceiling and rafters, said District 3 Chief Jeromy Phinney. The Laughery family had been enjoying a fire while watching a movie when the room filled with smoke. After determining that smoke was seeping from the eaves, the fire department was called. Firefighters moved furniture and personal items to attack the fire from inside while others dismantled the exterior chimney to stop the fire. A thermal imaging device helped pinpoint hot spots for firefighters to concentrate their efforts on. Eight District 3 units responded along with three from District 2, Phinney said.
