HOUSE FIRE IN MULBERRY GROVE

 

Firefighters from Mulberry Grove, Smithboro and Greenville fought a house fire Friday afternoon on Mulberry Grove Road, just south of Trapper Avenue. According to Smithboro Fire Chief Dale Deverick, the home of Thelma Scroggins was a total loss. Chief Deverick told us Thelma's daughter heard a noise and discovered the fire near an electoral box. She unsuccessfully tried to extinguish the fire with a fire extinguisher. She then went next door to call 911. According to Chief Deverick, evidence at the scene indicates the origin of the fire was electrical in nature. Firefighters were on the scene until 10:00 PM and recalled to a rekindle at 3:00 AM Saturday. Thankfully no one was injured by that fire.
