When Piedmont firefighters pulled out of their station one minute after receiving the call heavy black smoke was billowing into the air from the fire. The house was vacant and the windows and doors were boarded up. Firefighters arrived on the scene and fought the fire from the outside since the entire roof and upstairs was engulfed in flames.
