KOA Lane fire
Cocke County firefighters Monday morning responded to a home fire on KOA Lane after motorists on I-40 reported heavy smoke. Captain Danny Shelton of the Cocke County Fire Department said firefighters responded to the scene at 6:15 am and fought the fire for nearly four hours. Mike McMillian told fire fighters he and his mother were preparing to move into the 28' X 80' double-wide mobile home "When the first firefighters arrived, the house was fully involved. It had come through the roof and the windows. The home is a total loss, with the loss estimated at, at least $75,000, Shelton said. In fact McMillian estimates his loss at $80,000. DeputyLogan Starritt said there were three burn barrels about 50 feet from the home with hot coals, and McMillian said he had had a small fire in one on Sunday. The Cocke County Sheriff's Department is conducting an investigation into the blaze.
