Fire destroys family’s home
A fire that broke out around 8 am Thursday morning destroyed a family of four’s home in the 1100 block of Shawnee.
Crystal Parker, daughter of the homeowner, said her twin thirteen year-old siblings were at home waiting for their dad to carry them to school when they smelled smoke.
Parker said her brother discovered the fire in a storage area. He tried to put it out with a fire extinguisher, but was unable to control the fire.
After calling 911, the two went to a neighbor’s home.
Assistant Fire Chief Bill Murphy said no one was injured in the fire that destroyed the interior of the house. He said the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Chief Murphy said due to today’s high winds, fire crews would be standing-by the structure for several hours to make sure the fire does not rekindle.
Hearts and Hoses is assisting the family with some of their immediate needs.

“I spoke with you earlier today regarding my sister and her family. I just wanted to tell you thank you from the bottom of my heart. I went over there today and those boys had so much to tell me. They were so happy because they got jackets, beanies and back packs. They were so happy to show off things that we take for granted everyday. You are a blessing to that family and I really appreciate it.
