Fire destroys home on Herndon Road

A fire around 3:30 this afternoon destroyed a home at 1069 Herndon Road owned by Joey and Chelsey Bast.

No one was apparently home when the fire started and there were no injuries reported.

Chelsey Bast said she was about to pick her children up from school when a neighbor texted her about the fire.

“He said your house is on fire and I called 911,” she said while watching firefighters attempt to salvage her home.
