Fire units begin a defensive attack while waiting on more personnel to arrive and safely make an interior attack on the residence, Murphy said. Other fire units were already busy on a woods fire off Duncan Bridge Road. White County Stations 2 and 3 along with mutual aid from both Cleveland and Helen personnel responded. Fire units remained on the scene for extensive overhaul operations for approximately five-and-a-half hours.
"This was the third fire within a week at this location," Murphy said. As a result, the White County Sheriff's Office has been asked to investigate.
