Western Taney County Fire Chief Chris Berndt…


Crews arrived after 6:15 p.m. Tuesday to find the fire spreading to a nearby outbuilding. More than 2 dozen firefighters responded, with crews deploying 3 lines to extinguish the blaze, and remaining on scene for nearly 3 hours.

Berndt says the American Red Cross is assisting the family. He said a neighbor was on scene also providing assistance.

Berndt advises residents to use space heaters properly and make sure your home has working smoke detectors.
