Just as the rains started around 8:30 Saturday night, a call came into the Communication Center to report a house fire on Gossburg Road. It occurred around the 6 mile marker and the home was totally engulfed when the Sheriff’s Deputies and North Coffee Fire Department arrived. It was reported as a vacant house and the fire department made the decision to let it burn. The department stayed at the scene and made sure the fire was contained. No one was hurt and the cause was unknown at this time. Coffee County Deputies will investigate.
