A LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT FIRE CLAIMED A LORETTO HOME.  MEMBERS OF THE LORETTO, SAINT JOSEPH, LEOMA, AND SOUTHEAST FIRE DEPARTMENTS WERE CALLED TO A DELORIS STREET HOME JUST AFTER 10 ON A REPORT OF A STRUCTURE FIRE.  THE HOME WAS SAID TO HAVE BEEN FULLY ENGULFED IN FLAME WHEN FIREFIGHTERS ARRIVE WITHIN MINUTES OF THE CALL.  NO INJURIES WERE REPORTED.  THE RESIDENCE SUSTAINED HEAVY DAMAGE AS A RESULT OF THE BLAZE.  THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE REMAINS UNDER INVESTIGATION.  Photo by Austin Shane Garner
