Friday, July 29, 2016

A Wartrace-area man can find some relief despite losing his home to fire after finding his adult daughter wasn't there at the time.

The home of Mark Taylor, Cortner Road, burned early this morning, according to the Bedford County Fire Department.

First calls of the fire were received around 1:20 a.m. The home was "fully involved" when firefighters arrived moments later, the BCFD said.

Initially there were fears that Taylor's daughter might be in the home, but she was found a few minutes later at another nearby residence.

The cause of the blaze remains undetermined, the BCSD said.
