Suspicious Fire Under Investigation

The sheriff's department and Tennessee Bomb and Arson are investigating a suspicious fire Tuesday night in Liberty.

Lieutenant Anthony Boyd of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department told WJLE that firefighters were called to a vacant home at 226 Eckles Heights Street around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday night. The home belongs to Debbie Hardaway. The home, which was up for sale, contained some furnishings but no one lived there.

The cause and origin of the fire have not been determined, according to Lieutenant Boyd but the upstairs and the back left side of the home were destroyed in the blaze with heat, water, and smoke damage to other parts of the house.

Members of the Liberty and Temperance Hall stations responded along with the Main Station, and Tanker Truck of the county volunteer fire department. DeKalb EMS and sheriff's deputies were also on the scene. No one was injured.
