— Less than 26 hours after firefighters responded to an empty house in Carthage on Saturday, the same home was destroyed in a second fire.

Firefighters on Sunday at 7 a.m. were dispatched to a home in the 100 block of Old Glendon Road at the intersection of Needmore Road. Although the home was destroyed in the fire, crews were able to quickly control the flames that had engulfed the front of the home.
