Cocke County home destroyed by fire
A double-wide home on the Edwina-Bridgeport Road in Cocke County was destroyed by fire Wednesday morning. Cocke County Firefighter Robert Cashen said the call to the Julia Collins residence came in at 6:45 am. Firemen were told that the power had been turned off to the home and the Collins residents were in the process of moving out. They reportedly had started a fire in the fireplace prior to leaving the home before the fire was discovered. Firefighters with the Cosby and Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Departments responded as well and assisted in extinguishing the blaze. And sheriff's department personnel handled traffic control. Cashen said the American Red Cross also provided assistance to the Collins family. The 2,100 square foot home and contents were destroyed with the loss estimated at $90,000.
