Fire damages Corinth home


Photo by Mark Boehler

A Tuesday morning fire heavily damaged a house at 815 Douglas Street at the corner of Phillips Street in Corinth. The call was received about 10:30 a.m. from a neighbor who saw smoke coming from the one-story frame structure, which had heavy smoke and fire damage. The house was owned by Kym Tyson, who was not home at the time of the fire. The Corinth Fire Department sent four units to the blaze, which remains under investigation.
