Fire destroys home and car


DOTSON BRANCH – A home and vehicle were destroyed in a grease fire on Sunday.

Fire crews were dispatched to the home of Billy and LeAnna Sexton on Dotson Branch (Greenhouse Hollow) at approximately 12:30 p.m. on October 21. 

Salyersville Fire Department Chief Paul Howard told the Independent the homeowners tried to carry the grease out of the home, but ended up spreading the fire as they went. 

The fire destroyed the home and the car parked next to it, but all family members were able to get out of the home without injuries.

Salyersville Fire Department worked the fire, with District 3 Volunteer Fire Department and Middle Fork Fire Department responded with mutual aid for water supply.
