An early Saturday morning fire at 9139 Morgantown Road in Roundhill kept firefighters busy for much of the day and resulted in the loss of an abandoned home.
Fire departments were first called to the scene around 6AM Saturday to the property owned by Charles Parrish of Roundhill. Bear Creek Fire Chief J.T. Carroll confirmed the home was abandoned and no one had lived there for a couple of years.
According to witnesses, the scene was cleared that morning but the blaze rekindled soon after, resulting in firefighters returning to the scene and remained there for a good part of the day.
It was reported that in addition to Bear Creek, the Lincoln, Kyrock, and Brownsville fire departments also responded. The cause of the fire is unknown and there were no reported injuries.
