Fire destroys Main Street house


August 18, 2015

Firefighter Eli Harris communicates with other firefighters as they respond to a fire at 2221 Main St. at approximately 7:10 p.m. on Tuesday. The house was vacant, although Fire Chief Dave Barringer said there was a report of people leaving the house. Fire officials located propane tanks in the kitchen area, near the apparent origin, and that intensified the fire. Police officers blocked eastbound traffic on the highway. Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the fire. They have been unable to contact the owner, listed by the county assessor as Joseph and Emma Morgan. Further details will be reported as they become available.
