Cocke County home fires
Fire agencies in Cocke County responded to two recent home fires. On Friday at 11:05 am, firemen responded to the Ulyss Conard home on Blue Mill Road in the Del Rio community. Cocke County Fire Captain Terry Finchum said firefighters were told the electricity had been turned off to the home and so kerosene heaters were being used for heat in the double-wide residence. In addition to Cocke County units, firefighters from the Del Rio, Parrottsville, Long Creek and Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the blaze. Cocke County Deputy Ethan Keys said the fire departments determined the blaze started in the bathroom of the home from a small heater. Heaven Turner reportedly walked into the residence and observed smoke, so she fled the home and called 911. The fire, smoke and water left damage estimated at $100,000. On Saturday at 7:48 pm, firefighters responded to a fire in an older frame home on Hartford Road. Captain Finchum said the home owned by Jerry Barnes was rented to James Brown. Grassy Fork Volunteer firefighters were the first on the scene, and were joined by Cocke County, as well as the Cosby and Del Rio Volunteer Fire Departments, in shuttling water to the blaze. The cause of the fire which left a $95,000 loss, is undetermined and is under investigation. No injuries resulted from either fire.
