Flint home expected to be a total loss after evening fire

A home in Flint is expected to be a total loss after an evening fire.

The structure is located at 16369 County Road 1113 in Flint.

The Flint Volunteer Fire Department, Noonday Volunteer Fire Department, Dixie Volunteer Fire Department and Red Springs Volunteer Fire Department responded. According to Smith County Fire Marshal Connie Wasson, the home was more than 50% engulfed when crews arrived.

Both residents of the home escaped the flames.

Fire officials tell us the residents saw smoke coming from the utility room and immediately fled.

Wasson says the residents do have insurance.

Smith County Fire Investigators expect to return on Monday to continue investigating the cause of the fire.
