Sunrise Beach Home Destroyed by Fire
A fire over the weekend injures no one but destroys a Sunrise Beach home. The blaze broke out Saturday evening at a home on Grey Fox Drive. The homeowner was alerted by guests that their lake side dock was on fire. The homeowner tried to put out the fire with a garden hose, but had to call the Sunrise Beach Fire Department. Fire Chief Dennis Reilly was crews from Mid County and the Southwest Fire Protection districts provided mutual aid in fighting the blaze. Reilly says several wild fires kept the fire boat from Mid County getting to the scene faster. The two story home was completely destroyed. The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.
