Large House Fire

Posted by Eagle Staff on January 16, 2013

Unattended cooking led to a grease fire, which led to the total loss of a home on Columbia’s LaPorte Avenue yesterday afternoon. Gail Blomenkamp with the Boone County Fire Protection District says the two people in the home got out O.K.

The fire caused about 170-thousand dollars in damages. Blomenkamp says it was so strong, it melted some of the siding on a neighboring house.
