Fire Destroys Garland Home 

Fire destroyed a home in Garland today. A passerby reported the blaze on the Dexter road around 11:00 this morning. Several departments responded including Dexter, Garland, and Corinth. When firefighters arrived the home was engulfed in flames. Fire crews say no-one was hurt but the damage to the home is significant. “The damage is a total loss,” says Garland Firefighter Jeff Belanger, “we were able to save the barn and the further side of the house is still standing, but it’s still heavily damaged and still quite involved.”A fund has been set up for the family at a local credit union.
