Fire guts Bear Creek Road home

-A A +A
By Jay Cason

A fire of undetermined origin swept through Rick and Judy Bowers' Bear Creek Road home yesterday morning, destroying most of their possessions.

"By the time our first engine got here, smoke was showing on the roof and the inside was pretty much engulfed," said Chad Womack, fire chief of Anderson County Battalion 1.

"I think it started in the kitchen utility area," said Rick Bowers, who was at work when the fire ignited. "The state police are investigating it. I think the house is a total loss."

His wife, Judy Bowers, wasn't home when the blaze began either.
