On Monday just before noon, Coffee County Sherriff’s Department personnel responded to a house fire on Fredonia Road. New Union Fire Department had also responded to the scene.
A witness told authorities he drove by and saw smoke coming from the roof area of the house. He said he stopped and knocked on the door several time but got no response. The fire department was able to control the fire and cleared the home of smoke.
The home owner later arrived and told Corporal Harmon Campbell that his family was out of town since earlier in the day.
