Firefighters are struggling to contain a house fire on Old Collard Valley Road this morning due to icy conditions, according to Polk County Public Safety Director Randy Lacey.
Lacey said that volunteer firefighters haven't been able to contain the blaze yet as of his last update around 11:30 a.m. He said freezing hose lines were causing problems with putting out the fire at 1887 Old Collard Valley Road.
"It's also extremely hard to get to because of the icy road conditions," he said.
He did not report any injuries thus far in the blaze.
