Fire destroys Mill Branch home

A house on Mill Branch Road will probably have to be rebuilt after suffering heavy damage from an electrical fire Thursday afternoon,

At around 3:00 p.m., the Columbus Fire Department responded to a fire at a residence on Mill Branch Rd.

Fire Chief Greg Lang said the fire started in the attic and spread to the rest of the house.

Lang said the fire damaged most of the house, worth about $140,000, and it would probably have to be rebuilt.

"It was a total burnout," he said.

Lang said there were no injuries.
