A home in the 100 block of North White Oak in Desloge was completely destroyed by fire Sunday morning.
According to Desloge Fire Chief Larry Gremminger, the call came in at 8:23 a.m. and firefighters were on the scene by 8:30 a.m. The house was fully engulfed at the time of arrival.
Gremminger said they were able to knock down the flames within about 10 minutes, but were on the scene until after noon removing ceilings and walls to ensure the blaze was totally extinguished.
Four people lived in the home, only two of which were home in bed at the time of the fire. A neighbor alerted the two in the home of the fire.
No one, including emergency personnel, was injured in the blaze. The state fire marshal’s office was called in to investigate the cause of the fire.
“I would like to thank Park Hills Fire Department, Big River Fire Department, and Leadwood Fire Department for their assistance,” said Gremminger.
