Selmer firemen battle a fire on New Bethel Road last Monday morning. The house was owned by Shirley Sweat, according to neighbors. The identities of the tenants were unknown as of press time Tuesday. Selmer firefighter Chris Hansen told the Independent Appeal last Monday that there was an extensive amount of smoke, fire and water damage. The fire seemed to have started in the attic, and that was where there was the most fire damage.
