SPRINGVILLE - DECEMBER 30, 2022 - A structure fire on Cobb Lane is under investigation by Perry Township Volunteer Fire Department.

Perry Township, Marshall Township and Oolitic Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a modular home fire on Cobb Lane Thursday night

When firefighters arrived, they found the structure already fully involved.

According to Perry Township Volunteer Fire Chief Jessica Voorhies, the home was unoccupied and there was no electricity to the home.
