UPDATE: Fire in Jackson Ends in Total Loss


The fire that sparked on the 1,000 block of Maple Avenue Wednesday night is now being called suspicious.

Jackson Deputy Fire Chief David Wooden says he did not see any problem with the utilities and since no one had been living there since July, he says there is no reason the fire should have started.

The house has been torn down since the fire, but an investigation is still underway.



A fire in Jackson Wednesday night ended in a total loss of a vacant home.

The fire at the vacant home on the 1,000 block of Maple Avenue started at about 8:30 Wednesday night.

Jackson fire officials are trying to determine what sparked the fire. When crews arrived they could see heavy smoke and flames coming from the back of the home.

Officials tell us that no one was inside.

It took about two hours to get the flames under control. Officials say that the age and style of the home made it difficult to put out.
