Candle Blamed For Fire That Destroyed Zimmerman Home

Plumes of black smoke could be seen as the Scotland County Fire Department left town en route to the Amos Zimmerman residence north of Memphis near Morgan Fertilizer after a passerby called in a fire at the home at 2:12 p.m. December 15.

Upon arriving at the scene firemen found the east half of the home fully engulfed by flames. Hose teams battled the blaze and were able to prevent it from spreading to the western portion of the home. They then entered the basement and battled the fire there. The department utilized a pond north of the home for additional water.

The firemen were able to bring the fire under control in approximately 15 minutes. However the bulk of the building was completely destroyed by the blaze. The remainder of the home sustained extensive smoke, heat and water damage.

A total of 18 firemen in five fire trucks responded to the call. They were on the scene approximately two hours extinguishing hot spots.

The fire was believed to have been started by a candle. The family was not home at the time of the blaze. After all salvageable possessions were removed from the home, the owners allowed the remainder of the building to burn to the ground later that evening.
