A fire Wednesday evening destroyed a summer home belonging to Lee Neal at 344 Cooper Lane off Holmes Creek Road.
County Fire Chief Donnie Green said that a neighbor spotted the fire and reported it. The structure was fully involved in flames by the time it was discovered and could not be saved. The home and all contents were destroyed.
Firefighters contained the blaze to keep it from spreading to another home some fifty feet away.
Members of the Main Station, Cookeville Highway, Short Mountain Highway, and Tanker truck responded along with the Sheriff's Department and DeKalb EMS. No one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured. The cause is undetermined.
