A family of four is homeless after a fire destroys their home in Eldon. The blaze broke out early Thursday morning at a residence on Highway 87. A father, and three children, ages 3, 7 and 8, is receiving assistance from the American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter. Two Miller County volunteers responded on Thursday and met with the family. The Red Cross provided the family with financial resources to buy food. Family members also received comfort kits which contain personal hygiene items. The Red Cross says the family will be staying with relatives.
