A home in Bradfordsville and a home in Lebanon were both destroyed by fire last week.

On Tuesday, June 16, the Bradfordsville Fire Department responded to a house fire at 205 Salleetown Road in Bradfordsville. The home, which belonged to James Tungate, was completely destroyed before firefighters arrived on scene, according to Brafordsville Assistant Fire Chief David Rakes.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined but the family is requesting that an arson investigator look into the blaze.

Due to the extensive damage fire fighters couldn't determine where the fire originated, Rakes said.

The scene was cleared at 4:36 a.m.

At 2:39 a.m., Saturday, June 20, the Lebanon Fire Department, Lebanon Police Department and Marion County EMS responded to a fire at 415 Lincoln Avenue. The apartment at that location was gutted by the fire, Lebanon Fire Chief Ricky Mattingly said. While the cause of the fire is unknown at this time, Mattingly did say that it originated in the bedroom. No one was home at the time of the blaze, he said.

The scene was cleared at 3:57 a.m.
