Fire Damages Two-Story Farmhouse In Christian County

By Lynne Roberts. CREATED Jul 26, 2014

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.
