Fire consumes unoccupied home

The Sweetwater Fire Department responded to a house fire on the 500 block of Hill Street on Wednesday evening around 8:20 p.m. The home was not occupied at the time, as the owners were fixing the home to be rented out in the future. The house is a total loss and Sweetwater Fire Marshal Richard Spradlin is investigating the cause of the blaze. Shown are Lance Campbell, Chris Kiser and Grant Madden inspecting the floor of the house.
