Fire Damages Two-Story Farmhouse In Christian County
A two-story farmhouse north of Clever was destroyed by a fire early Saturday morning.
Firefighters from several agencies including Republic, Nixa, Billings, and Hurley were called to the 1900 block of Wise Hill Road around 4:00 a.m.
Crews had to combat heavy smoke and large flames. "When we arrived on scene the home was about 50% involved," Clever Fire Chief Ronnie Keithley told KTTS News. "We got the flames knocked down, but it's going to be a total loss."
Keithley said the home was occupied by a family and everyone was able to make it out safely.
Officials are now working to determine the cause of the fire.
