Two More County Homes Lost To Fire
During the past week, two separate fires have destroyed homes on Ross Road in the Rosman area and Stone's Lake Road in the Cedar Mountain area.
The Ross Road fire late Saturday night has left the two residents homeless.
Chase Owen, assistant Transylvania County Fire Marshal, said the cause of the fire was accidental and the blame is being placed on a faulty electrical panel box.
A neighbor said he noticed the home was on fire and kicked in the front door. He then pulled one of the oc-cupants to safety.
The other occupant, who was asleep when the fire broke out, also escaped safely.
