No One Hurt

In Three Blazes

Since Saturday

BY BILL JONES

STAFF WRITER

Three apparently unrelated fires kept local firefighters busy since Saturday.

The fires destroyed two unoccupied homes and a garage. No one was injured.

At about 10 a.m. Saturday, units of the Camp Creek and Sunnyside Volunteer Fire Departments were dispatched by Greene County 911 to a blaze in an unoccupied residence at 1955 Seaton Road.

Jeff Wilburn, chief of the Camp Creek VFD, said that the 911 dispatcher reported flames were already coming through the roof of the house when the call was received.

A report filed by Deputy Sheriff Mark Crum said the 28-foot-by 48-foot "board and batten" house was owned by William J. Ellerman and valued at $85,000.

Regie Jones, of the Sunnyside VFD, said the house was located about 200 feet off Seaton Road.

Jones also said firefighters used water from a large pond located near the house to extinguish the blaze. He said firefighters remained on the scene until about 2 p.m. Saturday.

The Camp Creek VFD sent four trucks and 14 firefighters to the scene, while the Sunnyside VFD responded with two trucks and eight firefighters to the scene.

The house was heated with wood, according to the Sheriff's Department report.

Chief Wilburn said the house was "a total loss" and noted that the cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Greene County Sheriff's Department.

MARSHALL LANE FIRE

About 2:15 a.m. on Sunday, units of the Greeneville Fire Department were dispatched to a fire at 144 Marshall Lane.

Early-arriving firefighters found a garage "fully engulfed" in flames, firefighters said.

"It was 100 percent involved in fire when we reached the scene," GFD Lt. Marty Shelton said.

The garage was destroyed and two "Snow Biz" trailers parked next to the garage were heavily damaged while two others also sustained radiant heat damage from the burning garage according to Lt. Shelton.

He said the garage was owned by D.W. Cutshaw.

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters remained on the scene until around 5:30 a.m., Sunday.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, according to the fire department.

BISHOP LOOP FIRE

At about 2 a.m. today, units of the Camp Creek and Sunnyside VFDs were dispatched to a mobile home fire in the 600 block of Bishop Loop.

Jeff Wilburn, chief of the Sunnyside VFD, said the unoccupied mobile home was "fully engulfed" in flames when the first firefighters reached the scene shortly after 2 a.m.

Wilburn said no one lived in the mobile home, which was a total loss.

Firefighters, he said, remained on the scene until about 5:45 a.m. today.

He noted that the Camp Creek VFD sent three trucks and 17 firefighters to battle the blaze, while the Sunnyside VFD responded with two trucks and a dozen firefighters.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Greene County Sheriff's Department.
