Large barn/apartment destroyed by fire
A large pole barn and attached apartment, was destroyed by fire on Lower Cliff Road in Cocke County on Monday. The structure was owned by Ronnie Hartsell and Debbie McGill. Cocke County Firefighter Cody Keys said the fire was reported at 11:39 am. A witness told the NewsSource that a pile of debris was being burned and it apparently spread to the structure. When Cosby Firefighters arrived on the scene they concentrated on cooling a 500 gallon propane tank until workmen from the Jefferson-Cocke County Utility arrived on the scene. When Cocke County firefighters arrived they6 concentrated on preventing the flames from spreading to a second nearby barn. Although a small portion of the barn did catch fire because of the intense heat, the structure was saved with just minimal damage. There were no animals in the barn, but the structural loss is placed at $100,000 and the loss of contents is placed at $50,000. Grassy Fork Volunteer firefighters also assisted in fighting the flames.
