A house in the Indian Rock community, in Laurie, is destroyed by fire. The call to 110 Watson Circle was received Tuesday afternoon and, according to Gravois Chief Ed Hancock, by the time crews arrived on the scene there was nothing that could be done to save the house.
The two occupants of the house were not home at the time and there was a pet dog which perished in the fire. No other injuries were reported. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time but Hancock does say it started somewhere inside the house. Personnel from the Sunrise Beach Fire District assisted on the scene.
