NEWPORT-An early Sunday morning fire that engulfed and completely destroyed a vacant rental house near a golf course is being investigated by Newport Fire Inspector Jeremy Shelton, he said.
"It's hard to determine the cause of the fire
because" the blaze destroyed the entire structure, Shelton stated. He
added, "We may not be able to determine the cause."
Two pumpers with the Newport Fire Department, and at
least six firefighters, responded to the 4 a.m. call of the fire at 431
Ridgecrest Road, in Newport. The residence is located off Golf Course Road, on
Sunday, Sept. 23, NFD Chief Randy Ragan saids.
