Home In Mohawk Destroyed By Fire

Fire early today destroyed a house at 570 Lamons Road, in the Mohawk community.

There were no injuries. Damage to the one-story frame house was listed at $50,000 by sheriff's Deputy C.H. Jessie.

The McDonald Volunteer Fire Department was called at 12:25 a.m.

The house was "fully involved" when firefighters pulled up, McDonald Chief Jimmy Killion said.

"It was just about down," Killion said. "The roof was gone, and most of the walls were gone when we arrived."

Owner James Warner, 65, lives a short distance away.

Killion said Warner's niece and nephew live in the house, and he thought they were inside. However, both returned to the house unhurt about an hour after firefighters were called there.

The cause of the fire is not known.

"The only thing that's left is the floor," Killion said.

About 20 firefighters from McDonald and Midway Volunteer Fire Departments were on the scene with six trucks.

Killion said that McDonald's trucks could not negotiate the narrow driveway and bridge over a creek leading up to the house and had to run hose lines about 500 feet to fight the flames.

Firefighters remained at the scene until about 4:15 a.m. today, Killion said.

Assisting were Greene County-Greeneville Emergency Medical Services, the American Red Cross and sheriff's deputies.
