Fire destroyed a home this morning (Monday) on Big Hurricane Road.
Lieutenant Bradley Mullinax of the DeKalb County Fire Department says the call came in around 6:00 a.m. Monday. A neighbor spotted the blaze and reported it.
Firefighters responded from the Cookeville Highway, Short Mountain Highway, Keltonburg, and Midway Stations and the Main Station, along with DeKalb EMS and the Sheriff's Department.
Mullinax says the house was already too far gone by the time firefighters arrived and it could not be saved.
No one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
Mullinax says firefighters were told that the home belonged to Darrin Ray.
