Robertson County Home Destroyed By Fire
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – A Robertson County home was destroyed by fire Thursday afternoon. Fortunately, everyone made it out of the home safely including one pet.
The home, located off of Bethlehem Road MAP Between White House and Springfield, is a total loss, however, firefighters from Cross Plains, Greenbrier, Springfield and Orlinda made a heroic effort to save a garage under the home that contained 1987 Monte Carlo Super Sport bought brand-new by the owner.
The garage looks intact but Firefighters can’t open the door until the fire is completely out or a flood of oxygen could reignite the house, so it’s a wait and see.
The family told Smokey Barn News they’re just happy that everyone made it out safely because the home can be replaced. There would have been a dog in the home but due to a twist of fate, the animal was not inside, the homeowner said.
The fire started just before 2 pm Thursday and the plume of black Smoke from the fire could be seen all over Robertson County.
This is a developing story, we’ll have more information, including a possible cause and the disposition of that Monte Carlo Super Sport as soon as officials release more information.
Firefighters from Cross Plains, Greenbrier and Springfield, as well as Robertson County EMA and EMS, all responded to the call.
UPDATE: According to Cross Plains Fire Chief Tommy Jackson, the Monte Carlo Super Sport (pictured above) was a project car and did not sustain much damage in the fire. (Photo submitted)
