Fire destroys Follansbee home

FOLLANSBEE - A home at 515 Lynn St. on Hooverson Heights was destroyed Monday afternoon by a fire that started with paper towels in the kitchen, according to the Hooverson Heights Fire Department.

The Follansbee, Franklin Community and Wellsburg fire departments also were dispatched to the blaze, which caused streets near the home to be closed until it was extinguished.
