The fire was located in the 1100 block of CR 2403 in the county, and was called in at about 6:45 p.m. Both a businessman on his way home and a pilot overhead spotted the fire, and alerted authorities, they told us. The pictures were taken by those two people, as well.

Hopkins County says that the county's Fire Station 20 responded, and Winnsboro, Como, Brinker, and Saltillo fire departments all responded to provide mutual aid. EMS was at the scene, as well. 

No one was home at the time of the fire, the county said. 

The home was a total loss. A witness said that there were chicken houses nearby, but they were unharmed.
