Hamilton County Sheriff's Office investigating mobile home fire in Harrison
The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office is now investigating a fire that destroyed a mobile home in Harrison Thursday night.
According to Hamilton County EMS spokesperson Amy Maxwell, neighbors called 911 when they noticed flames coming from the home just after 11:00 pm.
Charred and smoldered remains of the mobile home on Massengale Hollow Road are all that's left following the fire.
Firefighters with the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department were at the scene trying to contain the blaze at the home that sits about a half a mile off Harrison Bay Road.
Maxwell says firefighters were forced to use a defensive attack in order to get the flames under control because going inside the home wasn't an option due to structural problems.
With no safe way inside, first responders were also unable to determine whether there was anyone inside the home at the time of the fire or any injuries.
Detectives with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office are now working to find out what caused the blaze and are searching for any sign of human remains.
They spent much of Friday morning and afternoon sifting through rubble, collecting photographs and even using a drone to search for anything that may lead to answers.
A press release from Maxwell says the damages are unknown at this time and there's no information available on the property owner.
Firefighters from the Highway 58 Volunteer Fire Department worked quickly to lay more than 1,000 feet of hose line while at the scene of that fire.
