White County spokeswoman Ana Newberry said in an email that all occupants of the home had exited the 1700-foot structure before firefighters arrived and that flames could be seen through the roof of the structure.
The state investigator and local fire investigators were called to the scene to try and determine a cause. The home is unlivable at this time. Firefighters were on scene for about three hours. No injuries were reported.
