A Monterey woman who was in the process of moving lost her home when a fire struck early Thursday morning. According to Monterey Volunteer Fire Department Chief Larry House, the fire that began around 12:15 a.m. at 245 Taylor St. started in the back part of Phyllis Massey’s home. House said Massey had bought another home near Gratz and was planning to put her house on Taylor Street up for sale. She had already moved most of her belongings.

House said an arson investigator was called in and ruled the fire as electrical.
