Chainsaw sparks Hwy 31 structure fire


Fire crews were called out to a structure fire near the Gregg/Smith county line on Wednesday afternoon.

The Jackson Heights fire department responded to the residence where a shed was engulfed in flames.

Officials say the homeowners were tearing down the old building for lumber, and believe sparks from a chainsaw started the blaze.

Crews were able to extinguish the flames before they spread to the nearby wooded area.

No injuries were reported.
