An early morning fire Saturday destroyed a vacant double wide mobile home at 378 Lee Braswell Road

County Fire Chief Donny Green says a passerby spotted the blaze and reported it around 3:00 a.m. Saturday.

He says the fire was well underway by the time it was discovered and firefighters were unable to save the home. However they were able to keep the fire from spreading to two sheds on the property.

Green says it was obvious that no one had been living at the residence because there were no belongings in either the mobile home or the sheds.

Green says the residence was still hooked up to electricity but the cause of the fire is undetermined.

No one was injured.

Members of the Short Mountain Highway, Keltonburg, and Blue Springs Stations responded along with Tanker # 1, DeKalb EMS, and the Sheriff's Department. No one was injured.
