A Stoney Creek family was spending the afternoon away from home when it was destroyed by fire Thursday afternoon.
“It’s as close to 100 percent as you can get,” said Carter County Sheriff’s Department Investigator Larry Vaughn about the fire damage.
Responders moved a propane tank away from the house to avoid making the situation worse, he said.
“You can smell the gas in the air,” Vaughn said. “They finally got it away from the house. They have been keeping water on it the whole time.”
