This evening around 1500hrs, Kingsport Fire units responded to the 900 block of Tranbarger Drive in the Lynn Garden community for a reported structure fire. Upon arrival, crews found a mobile home with smoke and flames showing. They were able to make an aggressive attack on the fire, but the residence was a total loss. KFD Public Education Officer Barry Brickey stated that the occupant was not inside the residence when fire units arrived, but had walked to a neighbors house before discovering the blaze. The American Red Cross responded to the scene to assist with the displaced family. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
