Fire claimed a home belonging to Monterey Mayor Dennis Atha.
Some people say the home had the distinction as being one of the oldest – if not the oldest – homes in Owen County.
Firefighters said the blaze began early Saturday morning and was still smoking late into the evening. Firefighters stayed at the site Saturday and most of Sunday to make sure the blaze didn’t reignite.
Bee Spicer, columnist for the News-Herald, told firefighters her family once lived in the home, and it was the oldest in the county and once served as a trading post.
