A fire Saturday afternoon destroyed a house in the 4100 section of Springfield Road, Bloomfield, Saturday afternoon.
Northeast Nelson Fire Chief Ted Shields said it isn't known what caused the blaze.
"We're just lucky nobody was hurt, as far as we know," Shields said.
Glenn Maddox, who lived there with his wife, Sally, said no one was home at the time.
"We left about two o' clock, and then we got the call that it was on fire," he said.
Jack Seay, the owner of the property, was also on the scene.
