March marks busy month for KSVFD

March marked a busy month for the Kingston Springs Volunteer Fire Department (KSVFD), which responded to four house fires in the community. 


Notably, a house fire on March 8 in the Ranchettes neighborhood of Kingston Springs left one woman dead. 


“Last month Kingston Springs Volunteer Fire Department responded to 39 emergency calls, with an average response time of six minutes,” KSVFD wrote on its Facebook page on April 3. “Calls included 10 vehicle crashes, 16 medical assistance calls, and four house fires. We are proud to serve our community and hope everyone has a safe April.” 


During the early morning of March 24, another house fire occurred on Sam’s Creek Road. The family of five – two daughters aged 9 and 7 and a son aged 8 – lost everything. Pegram Elementary PTO started a GoFundMe for them “to buy basic necessities as they piece back together their life.” 


On the afternoon of March 25, KSVFD again responded to a house fire on Anna Rebecca Court in Kingston Springs. The fire is believed to have started as a brush fire that quickly spread to a nearby vehicle and then to the home itself. The Fairview and Pegram Fire Departments were called in to assist. 


Three people – a father and two kids – were home at the time of the fire, but were safely evacuated. One of the three cats present in the home didn’t survive.


As a reminder, burn permits are required by the state of Tennessee between October 15 and May 15. 


Additionally, the KSVFD is currently looking to expand its team. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, contact the team here
