Two homes destroyed by fire Monday evening
An investigation is underway into the Monday night fire which destroyed a frame home and a double-wide home on Old Newport Highway in Cocke County. Cocke County Deputy Sgt. Max Laughter said he and Newport Patrol Officer Josh Holt responded to the property of Margie Frazier at 10:30 pm to find the two adjacent homes completely engulfed in flames. A passerby had spotted the flames and notified authorities. Sgt. Laughter was told the Frazier is in prison and the home had not been occupied since last week. Joanne Holloway Baker, a sister to Frazier, said the one residence was a known drug house, and she last week had told the occupants to leave because of ongoing complaints from the neighbors regarding heavy traffic to the home. In fact, he says officers arrested several residents of the home on methamphetamine charges in recent weeks. A wooden outbuilding between the homes was not damaged, leading investigators to believe the two fires were set separately. A 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, owned by Frazier and parked nearby, was damaged. Cocke County firefighters responded to the fire, but this morning had not determined the dollar lose. Cocke County Detective Zach Shelton is investigating the cause of the fires.
