Fire destroys Concord Road home in Highland County


Fire destroyed an abandoned home Monday afternoon in the 2000 block of Concord Road, according to first responders. Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District Public Information Officer Branden Jackman told The Times-Gazette at the scene that no one was in the home at the time of the blaze, and the cause of the fire has yet to be determined. Jackman said the structure had a partial basement and the floor was not structurally sound, so firefighters made limited entry. The home sustained catastrophic damage and will likely be ruled a total loss, Jackman said. Paint Creek, Highland County North Joint Fire and Ambulance District, Southern Highland Joint Fire District and Winchester Community Fire District responded. The fire is under investigation.
