LA VERNIA - A home here has been deemed a total loss, following an early morning fire.

Nine agencies, including six volunteer fire departments, the La Vernia Police Department and the La Vernia Emergency Medical Services, responded to a structure fire at 102 Boeck Lane. Neighbors reported a loud explosion and sounds "like ammunition going off" around 7 a.m. When they saw the flames, neighbors turned hoses on the house, also hosing down their own homes.

Responding firefighters arrived to find the home, owned by Raymond and Brenda Schocke, fully engulfed. No one was home at the time.

Edwin Baker, coordinator of the Wilson County Health and Public Safety Office and the the county's fire marshal -- who was the scene's incident commander -- confirmed the La Vernia Police Department had requested an investigation by the state fire marshal's office. The Schocke family, who immediately attended the scene, assured community members that they have places to stay and are not in immediate need of anything.
