On August 24, 2023, at around 3:00am, the Arlington Fire Department responded to the report of a kitchen fire with a trapped adult and dog at a house on White Oak Lane.
Truck 1, Engine 1, and Engine 4 arrived to find a one-story residential home with smoke emitting from the front door. The first arriving unit received confirmation from the parents that their son was still inside the home. The fire response was upgraded to a second alarm because of this report.
