    Unhappy Oops

    Firefighter's home burns after turkey frying goes awry



    NOLENSVILLE, Tenn. Authorities responded to a deep-fat turkey fryer accident that burned the home of a volunteer fire fighter.

    Police Chief Paul Rigsby said Jim Finley was frying the turkey Wednesday on the back deck of his two-story log home when flames spread to the back exterior wall.

    Risgby said that by the time Finley's fellow firefighters arrived, flames reached up to the second story. No one was injured in the fire that caused heavy smoke and water damage.

    Finley is a captain in the town's volunteer fire department, one of four departments to respond.

    Did the Captain respond directly to the scene, or report to the station first?

    Look at three of your friends, if they are ok, your it.
