A home on the edge of the Spencer-Nelson County border was ruled a total loss after a fire destroyed it last Thursday afternoon.
Taylorsville-Spencer County firefighters responded to 5430 Highgrove Road at 2:32 p.m. where the two-story home was fully engulfed in flames, Fire Chief Nathan Nation said.
The home was occupied by tenant, Bobbie Shelburne, and owned by Field Houghlin, Nation said.
No one was home at the time of the fire. The incident was called in to emergency personnel by a road crew member paving Ky. 48.
