A fire this morning in Alexander County has destroyed a home.
Firefighters got a wake-up call at 6:28 am to a residence off Fox Valley Court which is near Barrett’s Mountain Road. When the first units arrived the dwelling was engulfed in flames.
County Fire Marshall Russell Greene said the “Mobile Home was unoccupied and has been for some time and there was no electricity.” Ellendale, Bethlehem, Wittenburg, and Taylorsville Departments all responded. Greene says the cause of the fire is under investigation and the structure is a total loss.
