Fire Destroys Home Under Renovation

A home was destroyed this morning in Longview. A fire was reported around 9 o'clock on Wilson Street, just outside Longview and about three miles from East Mountain.

When firefighters arrived, they found half of the home on fire. They say it took about 15 minutes to get the fire under control. Firefighters said they had some difficulty finding a hydrant.

Fortunately, no one was home at the time. It was undergoing renovations to be put on sale later.

The house fire also sparked some grass fires, but firefighters were able to keep them under control.
