Fire destroys Fisher home in College Grove, TN

March 2, 2008 at 1:30AM My son was awakened by the dog Maggie going crazy, he couldn't figure out what was wrong with her, he slipped into flannel pajamas to take her out. Opened the bedroom door and felt the door knob was warm and when opened saw pitch blackness and fire raging in the kitchen. He yelled at Lori to get the kids and get out the house was on fire. 5 firetrucks later and 22,000 gallons of water and it was a hopeless battle, they could not save the house nor anything in it. But 4 lives, the dog and cat were saved by the grace of God. The rest is just material. They walked away with just the pajamas on their backs but they have each other. These pictures were taken starting at 4:30PM around 15 hours after the fire and it is still burning. At least the 5 acres are still there. Casey wants his home back, Adam wants new stuff, Mom & Dad want to wake up from the horrible dream. Photos by Barbara Dale
