CLEVELAND - One person was taken for treatment and White County fire investigators are probing an early-morning blaze that destroyed a residence Tuesday morning.<br /> <br /> White County Public Safety Director David Murphy provided details. <br /> <br /> "A neighbor called 9-1-1 to report the blaze at 735 Holiness Campground Road at 4:47 a.m.," Murphy said. Arriving units found fire in the first floor of the house. <br /> <br /> According to Murphy, there were people in the home at the time. <br /> <br /> "There were at least four occupants to the house," Murphy said.
