OLD TOWN – Fire damaged a home in Old town Wednesday afternoon.
Firefighters were called to Bradbury Street around noon. When they arrived they found smoke and flames coming from the front side of the building.
Captain Mike Hildreth said, “ a gentleman that was working on trees up the street actually saw the smoke and called it in. We suspect it had been burning for quite awhile before anybody saw it”.
No one was home at the time the fire started.
A dog and some chickens died.
Firefighters say a heat lamp was being used but they are still trying to determine exactly what started that fire.
