Morning Fire Destroys Home

5-19-05 – A morning fire in Love County destroys a home Thursday. Flames broke out around 8:30 a.m. at a home near Love Valley Road – south of Marietta.

It took firefighters most of the morning to get the blaze under control. By the time they got onto the scene, heavy smoke was already trapped in roof; making it difficult for firefighters to reach the source of the fire.

Firefighters say the home is a total loss. The cause is under investigation.

The homeowners were not at the house when fire broke out and no injuries are reported.
