Tuesday Morning Fire Under Investigation
Cocke County deputies and firefighters responded to a house fire on Bogard Road early Tuesday morning. Jarrett Sharp called 911 and stated he had just finished fixing a broken water pipe at a nearby residence when he noticed the house fire. The home is owned by 47 year old Joseph Adams, who was at work in White Pine at the time of the fire. Ironically, Adams had a house fire on that same property back in December 2020. The cause of Tuesday morning’s fire is under investigation.
