An early Sunday morning fire destroyed the residence of Shelia Tramel at 4296 New Home Road.

County Fire Chief Donny Green says a neighbor spotted the fire and called 911 around 7:13 a.m. Members of the Short Mountain Highway, Keltonburg, Blue Springs and Main Stations responded along with a tanker truck, the Sheriff's Department, and DeKalb EMS.

No one was at home when the fire started.

Chief Green says Tramel had left home around 5:30 a.m. to go to work in Murfreesboro. Three other members of the family who lived there were also away from home when the fire started.

The cause is undetermined, but Chief Green says it appears to have started in the kitchen area.

No one was injured but a cat perished in the fire.
