A fire early Tuesday morning destroyed a vacant brick home at 1081 Hurricane Ridge Road, belonging to the Federal Mortgage Home Loan company.
County Fire Chief Donny Green said a neighbor saw the flames and reported it just before 3:00 a.m.
Members of the Cookeville Highway, Liberty, Short Mountain Highway, Main Station, and tanker truck responded but could not save the structure. The sheriff's department and DeKalb EMS were also on the scene but no one was injured.
No one lived at the residence. The cause of the fire is undetermined.
