By Staff, 04/30/20 9:11 AM

A Wednesday night fire at 7th and Spring Hill Road has resulted in the death of one person.  According to Interim Fire Chief Todd Martin, the Hope Fire Department was called to the scene about 7:30pm to find the house fully engulfed.  A neighbor at the scene said they had seen smoke coming from a vent on top of the house and called authorities.  Chief Martin said at the scene that firemen had evaluated the scene upon arrival but were unable to go through the house while the fire was active.  After getting the fire doused sufficiently, firemen conducted a thorough search and discovered the body of a four year old child in the structure.  Chief Martin said the coroner took charge of the body.  Firemen were on the scene about 5 hours.
