The mobile home of Teresa Stanley at 352 Adcock Cemetery Road was damaged in a fire around 3:00 a.m. Monday morning.
County Fire Chief Donny Green says Ms. Stanley told firefighters that she was awake when the fire started. According to Ms. Stanley, she heard a very loud popping sound, looked down the hall and saw fire and smoke coming from an electrical breaker box.
She got out of the trailer safely and went across the street to contact 911. She then stayed with a neighbor while firefighters fought the blaze.
Green says although there was some smoke throughout the structure, the fire was contained to the hallway and a bathroom of the residence. Ms. Stanley's personal belongings were also saved.
Members of the Midway, Cookeville Highway, and Short Mountain Highway stations responded along with a tanker truck. EMS was also on the scene as a precaution, but there were no injuries.
