Firefighter injured at 9-alarm fire in Clay Twp.

UPDATE @ 7:30 p.m. (Nov. 12): A 23-year-old woman was indicted today in an August arson that destroyed a house and sent a firefighter to a local hospital.

An arrest warrant was issued today for Anna Sprinkle in the Aug. 4 fire in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road after she was indicted on one count of felony arson, according to a Montgomery County grand jury report.

She is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 1, but could be in court sooner if she is arrested, according to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.

UPDATE @ 10:50 p.m. (Aug. 4): All of the residents of the trailer on Wengerlawn Road have been accounted for, Phillipsburg Fire Chief Matt Rhoades said. The cause of the fire that has destroyed a house that sits in front of that trailer is under investigation, he said.

UPDATE @ 10:30 p.m.:

A front loader has been brought to the remains of the house in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road that has been destroyed by fire.

“We have been actively looking for the property owner,” Phillipsburg Fire Chief Matt Rhoades said. “We don’t know whether he’s on scene or whether he’s at work. We haven’t made that connection.”

The house did have electricity running to it, he said, noting, “There is a mobile trailer on the property and word has it that he just stores material in the house that is burning.” The mobile trailer is located behind the house.

Rhoades said there is stark evidence that hoarding was occurring on the property. “Whether it’s storage for a business or … it’s unclear what material is in there. We’ve been on a defensive mode” at least 30 minutes.

There’s so much material in the house that access to part of it has not been possible, Rhoades said.

The injured firefighter was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital. Rhoades said he thinks the firefighter was overcome by the heat and humidity.

Crews from Phillipsburg, Brookville, Verona, West Milton, Clayton, Englewood, Union, Lewisburg and New Lebanon responded to the two-alarm blaze, Rhoades said.

UPDATE @ 9:36 p.m.:

Crews are continuing to search for man who is believed to have been living on the property in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road that has been destroyed by fire.

Brookville’s fire chief tells us firefighters are looking in a mobile home, which is behind the house full of items that has all but burned down.

Meantime, a firefighter has been taken to a hospital after he was removed from the scene on a stretcher. He was sitting up when he was put in a medical vehicle, but his condition is not immediately known.

UPDATE @ 9:05 p.m.:

The Brookville fire chief said they are working to determine whether a man, who is said to have been living in a house in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road, is in the structure.

The two-story house also is said to be full of items, as in what would be found in a hoarding situation. The fire chief said firefighters could not get in a part of the house because of all the stuff inside.

Crews have a defensive position and are allowing the flames to burn. There are crews on scene from Phillipsburg, New Lebanon and Englewood. A temporary retention pond, which looks like a shallow swimming pool, has been set up for water that is being brought to the scene.


Fire crews are battling a structure fire in the 9200 block of Wengerlawn Road.

Extra water is being trucked to the scene because the address is in a rural part of Montgomery County.

Crews from Englewood and several area jurisdictions were dispatched along with Brookville just before 8:30 p.m.

We have a crew on scene. We will update this report as we get information.
