House Destroyed By Fire In Gallatin

Posted: Updated:

GALLATIN, Tenn. - A century-old home under renovation was destroyed in Gallatin on Thursday morning.

The fire broke out around 11 a.m. Thursday at a home on Liberty Lane, off Upper Station Camp Road. The home was fully engulfed when firefighters first got on the scene. One obstacle firefighters faced was a limited number of fire hydrants in the rural area.

Sky 5 HD showed white smoke coming from the gutted home, with firefighters spraying water on the remnants of the home.

No injuries were reported. The homeowners, Mark and Lois Johnson, were renovating the historic home and said the loss is devastating.

"Since we've been married, we wanted a house just like this," said Lois Johnson. "With all the character, and it had flaws, but that's what made it so beautiful to me."

The cause of the fire was unknown, but fire officials said it started in the back of the house.
