Multiple fire departments responded to a structure fire at 182 John Miller Road in the Wingfield community around 10am this morning that claimed a home and detached garage.
The home belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Hawks, according to a family member on scene. The relative also said that the family had multiple dogs that appeared to be okay; however, two cats were apparently lost in the blaze.
No cause of the fire was given and no other injuries were reported. The residents were reportedly not home at the time of the fire. The home and garage were total losses.
Responding to the fire were the Wingfield, Chalybeate, and Brownsville Fire Departments, Edmonson County Emergency Management, Edmonson EMS, and WRECC.
