A house fire Friday afternoon, north of Camdenton, has been ruled as accidental. Mid-County Fire Chief Scott Frandsen says the fire in the 600-block of Owens Point Road was reported by occupants returning to the house. Upon arrival, firefighters discovered that the fire had been contained to the basement and, for the most part, had already been extinguished by a water line inside the house which melted. Extensive heat, smoke and water damage was reported and there was no word about any injuries. Sunrise Beach firefighters and personnel from the Camden County and Mercy Ambulance districts assisted at the scene.
