Fire destroys a local home
STODDARD COUNTY, Mo.— Dexter Fire Chief Don Seymore says no one was injured in a house fire Sunday morning.
The blaze broke out in the 900 block of Fannetta Street just after 11:30 in the morning, and firefighters stayed on the scene dousing hot spots for about three hours.
Chief Seymore says they were able to determine that the fire started in the garage area while a man and a woman were in the back of the house. A neighbor who spotted smoke and flames alerted them to get out of the house.
The home is a total loss, and the cause remains under investigation.
