Fire destroys Oak Grove home

A Tuesday afternoon fire destroyed a Lamar County home that was up for sale. It happened at 76 Poplar Drive about 4:30 p.m.

Fire officials say a student on a passing school bus noticed flames coming from the home. Firemen were unable to save it, but they kept the flames from spreading to nearby houses.

The owner had moved out recently. No one was injured.

The cause is being investigated. 
