Firefighters were called out to 4003 HWY 259N around 4am this morning to an abandoned house across from the intersection at Willie Hogan Road.
Emergency personnel said that the house was fully engulfed when they arrived and it quickly became a matter of controlling the blaze instead of saving the house.
According to county records, the last known owner of the property was Jay Freeman, but it was reported that no one had lived in the home for over a year. No contact information was available for Mr. Freeman.
The Edmonson County Sheriff's Office shut down a portion of HWY 259 for over an hour while the fire was contained. Both Kyrock and Brownsville Fire Departments were on scene.
The cause of the blaze was unknown and there were no reported injuries.

The house was not abandoned. My husband is currently in Colorado. We will be contacting authorities tomorrow and we ask that people be respectful as we will be working to move the cars this week. We have lost many valuable possessions that cannot be replaced. Thank you.
