A home in Chicota was destroyed by fire early New Year’s morning. Multiple departments responded to the blaze after it was reported by a neighbor who saw smoke about 6:00 am. There were no injuries and the cause of the blaze has not been determined. Two other houses were claimed by fires over the weekend, both in the Blossom area. One occurred at about 12:00 am in West Fairfield Street. The second fire broke out about 7:00 pm in the 400-block of Sylvan Road.
