Despite spending approximately seven hours battling a blaze, firefighters were unable to save a Boones Creek home, or what could have been as many as 17 animals that were trapped inside.

On Monday afternoon, at around 3:27 p.m., Johnson City firefighters responded to a call of a house fire at 2020 Carroll Creek Road.

Firefighters from five different Johnson City stations arrived to work the scene, along with members of the Johnson City Police Department and Washington County/Johnson City EMS. Although he said the house was a total loss, JCFD Lt. Mike Oliver, the day's acting shift captain, added that no human lives were lost, including his men.
