Wednesday fire destroys Hopkins County home

By Scott Harvey

Hopkins County – A Hopkins County home is destroyed by fire following a blaze yesterday afternoon. There were no reports of any injuries at the site along CR 2310.

Hopkins County firefighters were first on the scene, only minutes after the fire was reported and could see flames coming from left of the house. Sulphur Springs firefighters were next followed by volunteers from numerous departments in the county.

The blaze had to be fought defensively due to manpower and water shortages.

The Red Cross provided rehab to the firefighters and assistance to the family displaced by the fire.
