House a total loss from fire

(WEAU) - A fire has destroyed a home near Jim Falls.

It happened on Highway 178. A Lieutenant with the Anson Fire Department says they believe the fire started in the living room. He says when crews arrived, heavy smoke was coming from the house and flames were showing when they entered the home.

He says nobody was home and no one was injured, but a pet parrot did die in the fire.

Crews have blocked one lane of Highway 178 to fight the fire.

The lieutenant says the house is a total loss. He says the person who lived in the home will be staying with an acquaintance.
