Chavous home burns
The large and beautiful home of Clyde and Jan Chavous on Wayside Road, just off of the Allen Road, burned Sunday afternoon. The Chavouses were out of town as was their daughter, Beth Chavous, who lives nearby. The house was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Grove Hill, Helwestern and Antioch firefighters and equipment battled the fire, ferrying water from hydrants on the Allen Road. Democrat Editor Jim Cox was coming back to Grove Hill from Coffeeville and could see the heavy smoke from the Clarkesville area, several miles west of town.
