Kitchen Fire Source of Fire that Destroyed Trailer

Fire officials have determined the cause of a fire that destroyed a home last week. Local fire crews responded to a trailer fire in the 2400 block of Missouri Highway 11 around 3:20 p.m last Thursday. The homeowner was asleep when the fire broke out in the kitchen, and spread quickly throughout the trailer, fully engulfing the home. The homeowner and her two children were able to get out safely. The Northern Adair County Fire Chief says the source of the fire was the kitchen stove. The American Red Cross has been assisting the family.
