A fire at a Troutville dentist’s office caused $50,000 in damage

Fire crews responded to a fire at a Troutville dentist’s office Tuesday night.

The fire at Dr. Scott Miller’s office started just before 5:30 p.m., according to Truthville Fire Chief Zach Beckner.

Beckner said crews were able to quickly contain him and no one was hurt.

“There was nobody there, it was closed for the day,” Beckner said. “That’s why we had to break in that front door to get to the fire. But the fire was actually localized in one laboratory.”

Beckner estimated about $50,000 in damage to the building. According to him, the fire started due to the remaining heat source and is considered accidental.
