No one was injured in a fire Monday that destroyed a home just east of Shelbyville.
The fire broke out at about 12:45 Monday afternoon in the 600th block of Southlawn Drive, the home of Becky Cook.
Shelby County Sheriff’s Deputy Fred Rothenburger said Cook was not at home at the time. No one else was at the house, either, as she lived alone, he said.
He added that some pets – two dogs – perished in the blaze.
The house was a total loss, and Rothenburger said he did not know where Cook planned to stay.
