Fire destroys Wilson County house

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters in Wilson County battled a blaze for more than two hours early Saturday.

Crews were called to a house fire on Beasleys Bend Road just before 5 a.m.

Flames had already spread throughout the home by the time first responders arrived. Crews say the home was burning for 40 minutes before anyone noticed.

Firefighters had trouble getting water to the flames; they had to haul water in from more than a mile away because two nearby hydrants malfunctioned.

There was no immediate information about how the fire started. No one was in the home when the fire began.

No injuries have been reported.
