Home heavily damaged

July 19, 2013

Investigators have started to try to determine the why and the where about this morning’s fire in western Oconee County that heavily damaged the living quarters of an old farmhouse. The fire, at 928 Cleveland Pike Road, apparently was reported by a passerby. And that alert prompted a response from the Cleveland Volunteer Fire Department, as well as other Oconee County fire stations. Responding, also, were fire fighters, trucks, and equipment from the Shiloh Fire Department in Stephens County, Georgia. No one was injured. Grahl Haney of the Oconee County Fire Department said no one was home at the time. Haney declined, at this time, to identify the homeowner. He estimates 80% of the one-story structure lost to fire, as well as contents in the home.
