Second building fire this week

Mt. Zion fire

Three days after area fire departments responded to the apartment fire on the Vienna Square Monday, another building burns near Buncombe. Three area fire departments responded to the call.

The Buncombe Fire Department was dispatched early Thursday afternoon to a report of a house fire located on Mt. Zion Road southeast of Buncombe. Vienna and Goreville crews were also called to assist.

The house was unoccupied at the time of the fire. Its owner Jerry Goddard and family members used the house for storage of family keepsakes.

No one was injured.

The structure and its contents were a total loss.

Buncombe fire chief Sue Davis said, “I feel sorry for the family for their loss of so many family memories.”

Additional details will be published in The Vienna Times as they become available.
