Couple Loses Home to FireWritten by Theresa Rose on February 23, 2015
The Red Cross is assisting a rural Mt. Pleasant couple who lost everything in a weekend house fire. Mt. Pleasant and New London fire departments were called to the home of Steve Hobson and Shea Noe at 2718 Kentucky Avenue south of Mt. Pleasant Saturday at about 10:30 am. Hobson was home at the time and heard the smoke alarm go off. He was able to find the couple’s cat and get out of the house that was completely destroyed. Crews were on the scene until almost 3 pm. The cause remains under investigation but it is believed the fire started under the house.
