No one injured in Thanksgiving blaze

No one was at home when a fire broke out at 225 First St. in Yatesboro on Thanksgiving.

No one was home when a fire tore through a Yatesboro residence at 225 First Street on Thanksgiving evening, causing extensive damage throughout the two-story interior.

The fire started between 6:30 and 7 p.m. while the homeowners, Michael and Brooke Bish, were having dinner at a family member’s home, Chief Kevin Nelson of the Rural Valley fire department said.

“It’s pretty bad inside,” Nelson said. “There is severe interior damage all through the house. The fire ran from the basement clear up to the attic.”

State police fire marshals are working to determine the cause and origin of the fire.

The home was insured, Nelson said.

Dayton and Plumville fire departments assisted at the scene.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
