The flames kept the three people inside from getting out through the front door. They kicked out the back door to escape the fire.  Three pets were also inside.  So far, two of the animals have been found.

The homeowner believes someone may have started the fire because many items on the porch have been moved.

Lawrence County House Fire

The first fire happened around 2:30 a.m. at a home on County Road 372 in Lawrence County.  We’re told the homeowner woke up to the smell of smoke.  He tried to open the bedroom but the door knob was too hot.  The homeowner then jumped out of the window and called firefighters.

The fire destroyed the home.  The homeowner is OK.  No one suffered any significant injuries from any of these fires.
