Franklin Co. two-story home destroyed by fire while family at church

Posted: Updated:

SCROGGINS (KYTX) - Several fire departments responded to a fire at a two-story home in Franklin County.

The house fire is located in the 100 block of Sandy Lane near the south shore of Lake Cypress Springs in the Scroggins community. That's between Winnsboro and Mount Vernon.

At least five fire departments responded around six tonight. No injuries were reported.

South Franklin Volunteer Fire Chief Eddie Rhoades says the family was at church when a neighbor saw their house was on fire and called 9-1-1.

The home is a total loss, but no one was home. It took more than an hour to extinguish the fire. Firefighters are still on the scene, Rhoades said.
