Residential Fire On Little Sand Mountain

A residential fire Saturday resulted in a total loss of a home as per the Gore Fire Department Facebook page:

Gore fire department, station 3, Subligna, station 8 and Hays station 4 , Redmond EMS and Chattooga County Sheriff’s Office, was dispatch to a residential structure fire on Little Sand Mountain Rd. Upon arrival fire crews attempted an aggressive interior attack but due to the advanced nature of the fire, type of building construction, and a damaged fire hydrant, progress was slow and crews were forced out of the structure and to an exterior attack.

The structure was a total loss.

A fire service investigation determined the cause was and electrical short in a wall cavity in the kitchen area.

One occupant was permanently  displaced but no injuries were noted.
