Darren Doyle, story and photos:
It was a long night for local firefighters after they responded to a structure fire in the 8100 block of Brownsville Road.
Emergency personnel were paged to respond around 11:30pm Wednesday night, where firefighters found a home fully engulfed. According to reports at the scene, the home was a rental property not currently occupied, which is apparently owned by someone outside Edmonson County.
The Rocky Hill, Brownsville, Chalybeate, and Wingfield Fire Departments responded to the blaze, where no injuries were reported. After battling the fire for a few hours, firefighters were paged again around 5am after the fire rekindled. According to emergency radio traffic, what was left of the structure was fully engulfed again.
The house was a total loss.
Also responding to the blaze was the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office, Warren RECC, EC Emergency Management, and the District 3 Constable.
