Lawrence County Home Destroyed By Fire

CREATED Mar 28, 2014

LAWRENCE COUNTY, Tenn. - Several volunteer fire departments teamed up to battle a house fire in Lawrence County that left a family without a home on Thursday night.

The Ethridge Volunteer Fire Department responded to the blaze at a large, two-story house on Buffalo Road just after 10:30 p.m.

When they arrived, flames were already coming out of a bedroom window.

The residents made it out safely. One of them told fire fighters she plugged in a space heater, left the room for just a moment, and then heard a pop.

When she returned the room was already on fire.

The Red Cross is making sure the family has clothes and a place to stay.

In addition to Ethridge, the Henryville, Summertown and Crawfish Valley Fire departments all assisted in battling the fire. Lawrence County EMS also responded.
