A fire Sunday morning destroyed the residence of Robert and Tressia Luna at 327 Joe Turner Road in the Jefferson Community.

Central dispatch received the call around 5:15 a.m.

Assistant Fire Chief Roy Merriman told WJLE that the Luna's were in Nashville visiting family at the time of the fire so no one was at home and no one was hurt. He said the Luna's son and daughter-in-law, who live close by, were awakened by a noise. They looked out and saw the fire and then reported it.

Members of the Keltonburg, Belk, and Blue Springs stations of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department responded along with the DeKalb County Sheriff's Department and DeKalb EMS.

The cause of the fire is undetermined.
