Union, Ovett and Moselle volunteer fire departments responded to a structure fire at 1016 Ovett-Moselle Road at 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 18.

The single-family residential structure was engulfed in flames upon arrival of the first responding units. The home was unoccupied at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is suspicious, and the State Fire Marshal will be investigating.

This is Union Volunteer Fire Department’s fourth structure fire this year.
