Midnight Fire Destroys Home on Coconut Ridge

A midnight fire destroyed a residence on Coconut Ridge Road early Thursday morning.

Central dispatch received the call at 12:19 a.m.

County Fire Chief Donny Green said that firefighters were called to the residence of Timothy White. A neighbor had spotted the blaze and called to report it.

No one was home at the time.

According to Chief Green, Mr. and Mrs. White live in Brentwood and use the home on Coconut Ridge as a secondary residence.

The home was fully involved in flames by the time it was discovered and firefighters could not save it. They were able to keep the fire from spreading into the woods around the home. The cause is undetermined.

Members of the Cookeville Highway, Short Mountain Highway, and Main Stations of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department responded along with DeKalb EMS and the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Department.
