House lost to fire in Lenox, no injuries

Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Two firefighters extinguish hotspots that were still ablaze during Tuesday night's fire in Lenox. There were no reported injuries and the homeowner was believed to be away at the time of the fire. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The Lenox Fire Department responded to a house fire on Tuesday at approximately 7:10 p.m.

The residence at 14 Crawford St. was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived on the scene. Dyer County Fire Chief James Medling said the homeowner was believed to be away at the time of the fire. It took the Lenox Fire Department, with backup from the Finley Fire Department and a Dyersburg tanker, 30 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Medling said no other structures were damaged by the fire, but the house was a total loss.

Firefighters look into the interior of the burned-out house located at 14 Crawford St. in Lenox.

A Dyersburg Electric truck came to disconnect the power to the house as firefighters were still battling hotspots into the night.

The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.

One person at the scene said the house was once considered one of the nicer houses in Lenox many years ago.
