Around 10:45pm Monday night Coffee County Deputy Nick Graham was dispatched to 3978 Woodbury Hwy for a house fire. When Deputy Graham arrived he discovered the home was fully engulfed in flames. New Union Fire Department began fighting the blaze and other department firemen were summoned for man power.
Graham spoke with the homeowner who said the home was valued at $35,000. The man stated that his grandson was renting the home. The police report says that fire department personnel stated the fire started at the rear right side of the home in the kitchen. They advised the fire appeared to be suspicious in nature because a window had been broken when they arrived and the fire appeared to have started on the floor where the window was broken.
The Coffee County Sheriff’s Department is investigating.
