A house near Hull was completely destroyed by fire in the early morning of Sept. 19.
A passing motorist spotted the fire at the brick house, located at 587 Charlie Bolton Road, about 4:18 a.m. and called E-911.
According to Hull fire chief Donny Evans, the unoccupied rental home was “on the ground” when the firemen arrived at 4:25 a.m. “We believe the house had probably been burning about an hour and a half,” Evans said. The home belonged to Mike Reilly.
The fire marshal was called to the scene since the house was vacant at the time of the fire and there were no lightening storms in the area. A cause of the fire has not been determined.
