Home Burns Near Red Springs

A home is destroyed in Northern Smith County Tuesday afternoon. Investigators say something might have been left burning on the stove.

Crews were called to the wood frame house on Highway 16 about 12:20 p.m., but there was little they could do to save the home. The people who lived there were at work and no one was hurt.

Lindale and Hawkins firefighters assisted Red Springs volunteers. The official cause is still under investigation.
