Information from WYSH Radio
Anderson County investigators are looking into the cause of a fire that destroyed a home on Old Fraterville Hollow Road near Lake City Monday night.
The home’s owner, Kenneth Duncan, had been allowing his sons to stay at the home when the fire broke out Monday night. The two sons—Eddie and Anthony Duncan—along with a woman staying at the house with them had been visiting neighbors when one sibling saw an orange glow coming from the direction of the house.
One brother told investigators that he had left a kerosene heater turned on in the hallway of the house, which had no electricity running to it, before leaving, but Briceville firefighters told Sheriff’s deputies it did not appear that the fire had started near the heater.
The Criminal Investigations Division will follow up. No one was injured in the fire.
