A fire on Saturday evening destroyed a home in East Asheville. It happened on Lower Grassy Branch Road shortly after 6:00pm. Firefighters say three people were inside when it started, but they all made it out safely. Crews from the Riceville Fire Department say the home was fully-involved when they arrived. They say cold and windy conditions made it difficult to put-out the flames. Firefighters say the family's pet dog did not make it out. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. The Red Cross is assisting the family.
