A local family lost its home in a fire last Thursday.
The home of Richard and Jackie Davenport, located at 1840 Bonds Mill Road, was a total loss, said Anderson County Fire Chief Mike Barnes.
An official cause has not been named, but Barnes said he has an idea of how the fire started.
“I can’t say with 100 percent certainty, but we’re leaning toward candles,” he said.
“With so many people with their power off, we’re really lucky we didn’t see more of that.”
