Hale home fire
An investigation is underway into a fire last Friday which burned items around a home on Vinson Hollow Road in Newport. Deputy Lt. Michael Whitmer of the Cocke County Sheriff Department said he responded to the Myra Hale home on a report of a brush fire. He was told by the occupant that she heard a sound of someone hitting her mobile home at 8:15 pm, and outside Hale saw an array of sparks. The fire burned the side of a Dodge pickup, and then spread destroying a Honda UTV, box of housing siding and stacked lumber, resulting in a total loss of $4,400. Personnel with Newport Utilities say the sparks that Hale saw may have come from a wire arcing. The cause of the fire is undetermined.
