Joseph Way fire
Cocke County authorities are still trying to determine the origin of a Saturday evening fire which destroyed a Carson Springs home. Robert Cashen, Senior Captain for the Cocke County Fire Department said his agency was called to the Teresa Jones home on Joseph Way at 8 pm. Heavy smoke was coming from the residence. Jones' vehicle was parked at the home leading neighbors and firefighters to initially believe she was inside the burning residence. Later however they learned she had gone out of town with a friend. "The hottest part of the fire appeared to be in the bedroom however we haven't determined the cause," Captain Cashen said. Although the fire was controlled, the home is a total loss. Cocke County Sheriff personnel assisted at the scene and the American Red Cross is offering assistance to Jones as well. The loss in the blaze is placed at $70,000.
