A house fire on County Line Road destroyed a home on Christmas.

The fire was reported to Chattooga 911 around 9 PM on Christmas Night. The caller said that it appeared a house was on fire near the Floyd County line on Highway 100.  The Holland Fire Department and a Chattooga County Deputy were dispatched to the scene.

The responding deputy could not find a structure fire on Highway 100 but did see the glow of a fire on County Line Road.  The deputy alerted the Holland Fire Department which then responded to the scene of the house fire at 277 County Line Road. The house was located in Chattooga County, but has a Rome address.

According to Investigator Eddie Stroup with the Chattooga County Sheriff’s Department, no one was home at the time of the fire and the structure was a total loss.  There is no word at this time as to the cause of the fire.
