Former Burk Volunteer Fireman Admits To Reporting A False Insurance Claim

A former Burkburnett Volunteer Firefighter receives probation after admitting to filing a false claim to his insurance company following a house fire at his home.

In August of last year, Chase Carter's home burned down, Burk Fire Officials originally believed that an iron started the fire.

Upon further investigation police say some things had been brought up that seemed suspicious about the fire.

The Burk VFD Captain told police that someone came forward and stated Carter asked them for the serial number to a BK Brand radio, valued at a little more than 25-hundred dollars.

This person also told the Captain--- that Carter was going to claim the radio was lost in the fire, even though he never owned one.

On November 2nd-- the radio-- with the same serial number of the one on Carter's insurance claim-- was brought to the Burk Police Department.

In 87th District Court today, Carter was found guilty and sentenced to four years probation
