Tuesday, March 13- A midday blaze today destroyed a home on 4th Street East in Ashland. The fire was reported to 911 by a passerby who saw smoke billowing from the house.
Homeowners, Lee Roy and Kacie Brown were both at work when they were informed that their home was on fire. They both arrived on the scene to find emergency personnel battling the fire, which had fully engulfed the house. Most of the home was burned, with some of the structure suffering water and smoke damage beyond recognition.
No one was home at the time the fire occurred, however two beloved family pets did perish. All of their belongings were destroyed. Cheaha Music is doing a gift card drive for the family.
