After causing house fire, 500-pound wood stove stolen from yard

ELIZABETHTON — A house fire reportedly caused by a cast iron wood stove was just one of the problems a Long Hollow man suffered this week.

Jeffrey Frank Green told Deputy Sarah McWhirter of the Carter County Sheriff's Department that he had set the Fishmaster cast iron wood stove out in his yard at 9 a.m. Wednesday, after the fire.

Green said he returned to his residence Thursday and discovered the stove was missing. He said the stove weighs 500 pounds.
