A fire which claimed a Taylorsville home last week  is under investigation and the cause is yet to be determined, according to Alexander County Fire Marshal Russell Greene.

Flames erupted at the residence, located at 222 Hammer Road near NC 90 East in Taylorsville, on Thursday night, April 21. About 25 firefighters from Taylorsville, Sugar Loaf, and Hiddenite fire departments responded to the blaze. One firefighter was injured when she twisted her ankle after falling through the floor of the home, Greene related.

The home was a total loss, with damages estimated at $75,000. Greene said the property owner is Mary Curry, of Lincoln County.

No one was supposed to have been in the home, Greene stated.
