Early A.M. Fire Destroys
Two-Story Midway Home

A fire discovered shortly after 2 a.m. today left a two-story house inthe Midway community a total loss despite the efforts of more than 40volunteerfirefighters.

Anthony Ball, chief of the Midway Volunteer Fire Department, said firefighters were dispatched by Greene County 911 to the Robert Wayne Dixon residence at 675 Midway Railroad Street at 2:18 a.m.

Ball said Dixon and another resident of the house, whose name he didn't have, managed to escape the house without injury.

The house, which had a basement and two stories above ground, was at the intersection of Midway Railroad Street and First Street in Midway.

Ball said smoke and flames were visible in the laundry room of the two-story frame residence when the first firefighters reached the scene.

"Our entry team went in to fight the fire, but it rolled over their heads and forced them back out of the house," an exhausted Ball said about 7:30 a.m. "It spread up into the attic and left the house pretty much a total loss."

Units of the Midway and Mosheim Volunteer Fire Departments initially responded to the fire and requested water-tanker support from the Orebank and Town of Mosheim Fire Departments.

"We used between 40,000 and 45,000 gallons of water in extinguishing the fire," Ball said.

About 40 to 45 firefighters and eight fire trucks were involved in fighting the fire.

Firefighters did not return to their stations until about 7:30 a.m., Ball said.

The cause of the fire had not been determined this morning.
