CAR FIRE AT HOME WEST OF MULBERRY GROVE LAST THURSDAY

 

Smithboro Firemen responded Thursday afternoon at 2:16 to a report of a car fire at a residence about a mile west of Mulberry Grove on Rt. 140.  According to Fire Chief Dale Deverick, the car was fully involved when firemen arrived.  The car was parked close to the home and a camper trailer so Greenville Firemen were called for mutual aid with a tanker truck and manpower, in case the home caught fire.  Fortunately, Smithboro Firemen were able to cool down the house and extinguish the car fire at the same time, keeping the home from catching fire. Deverick said the owner was in the home and needed something from the car.  After returning to the house, she heard the car horn, went outside to investigate, and the car was already on fire.  Deverick said the cause of the fire is undetermined and the car was totally destroyed.  There were no injuries.  Firemen were on the scene for about an hour.
