Fire Heavily Damages Home On Gallihar Lane

Faulty wiring may have been the cause of a fire about 7:45 p.m. Sunday that heavily damaged a house at 50 Gallihar Lane, sheriff's Deputy Michael Jones said in a report.

The homeowner, Joyce Walker, told deputies that she smelled something burning but could not locate the source of the odor, and went outside.

A few minutes later, "flames became visible on the right front corner of the house," the report said.

The DeBusk Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene.

Son Jeff Walker told deputies that there were problems with electrical outlets in the den, where the fire is believed to have originated.

Neighbor Joe Whitt said in an email to The Greeneville Sun that there were no injuries "and everyone made it out of the house safely, including the two family birds."

Whitt said Walker had been outside when the fire started "and entered the home only to find her house was on fire."

Whitt said that Jeff Walker was pulling onto Gallihar Lane when he saw the fire.

In addition to DeBusk firefighters, the Greeneville Fire Department responded to the scene, along with the Sunnyside Volunteer Fire Department and Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services.

The Greene County chapter of the American Red Cross put the family up in a hotel, Whitt said.

Damage to the house totals $50,000.
