Vacant home destroyed by fire

No one was injured, but a vacant home off Mt. Olivet Road in Pulaski was destroyed by fire Thursday night.
Chip Hutchinson, fire marshal for Pulaski Fire Department, said the fire at Hogan’s Place was reported just before 10 p.m. and the first units arrived on the scene at 10:04 p.m.
The home, owned by Kathy Murphy, was fully engulfed when the first units arrived.
Hutchinson said the cause of the blaze is under investigation by the fire marshal’s office and Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. A storm was passing through the area at the time. He said neighbors reported hearing a “loud clap of thunder and their lights flickered” just before they noticed the smoke.
The single-story, wood frame home, valued around $10,000, was a total loss, Hutchinson said. It had been vacant for several months and did not have active electrical service.
The last units left the scene about 2:30 a.m.
Pulaski Fire Department responded to the fire with one engine and one utility truck, and Draper Fire Department provided additional manpower, according to Hutchinson. In addition to the fire marshal’s office and two deputies from the sheriff’s office, Regional Emergency Medical Services Inc. (REMSI) also was on the scene.
