Crew investigate Johnson County fire

It's an added dose of pain for a woman who lost her home Monday in a fire. Two months after her husband died, the Johnson County woman's home was destroyed after a fire broke out.

It happened at the intersection of Highway 1428 and 302 in West Van Lear around 12:30 Monday afternoon. The homeowner says no one was inside when the fire started.

Fire crews were able to salvage some personal belongings. They say a faulty breaker box may have started the fire.
