HOUSE BURNS — A Troy duplex was destroyed in a fire that broke out at midday Sunday. The Troy Volunteer Fire Department was paged out at 12:21 p.m. to a blaze at 128 South Main St., where firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke coming from the rear of the house. It was deemed unsafe for firefighters to enter the duplex, with a defensive attack from outside being the safest approach, according to a fire official. The neighboring Obion and Hornbeak fire departments were also on the scene to assist. The duplex was reported to be a total loss. The cause of the fire is unknown and remains under investigation. Troy firefighters were on the scene about four hours. (Photo courtesy of Hornbeak Volunteer Fire Department video)
