A fire Monday night in Abbeville destroyed about half the home and left behind heavy smoke damage at the intersection of West Port and Pershing Streets. The man who lives there was at his mother's house when the fire broke out at 11:20. The chief suspects an overloaded receptacle started the fire. Firefighters fought the fire for a half hour.
