South Fayetteville Family’s Home Nearly Destroyed By Fire

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- A south Fayetteville family lost most of their home to a fire on Sunday (May 7).

The fire started in the garage of a family home off Highway 265 on Sunday afternoon, and then quickly spread to the rest of the home, said Captain Travis Whisenhunt from West Fork Fire Department.

The fire destroyed most of the home, with just a portion of the right side and the frame still standing. Although firefighters worked to contain the fire, the home was still smoldering around 8 p.m.

"The family is quite upset over the fire," Whisenhunt said. "We're a community that looks out for each other and we'll be here through the night helping our neighbor."

Luckily nobody was injured in the fire, Whisenhunt said. The cause of the fire has not been released.
