A likely electrical problem is being blamed for a house fire south of Camdenton causing significant damage. Mid-County Fire Chief Scott Frandsen says personnel responded to the 900 block of Forbes Road, off old south 5, late Tuesday afternoon and, upon arrival, discovered the back part of the house fully involved. An interior attack was able to bring the blaze under control in about 30 minutes with fire damage contained to that area, heat and smoke damage throughout the house. The house was not a primary residence and there were no injuries. Osage Beach and Sunrise Beach assisted at the scene. During another call, an excavator is the cause of a gas leak in Camdenton yesterday, according to the Mid-County Fire Protection District. Crews were called to the intersection of Mulberry Street and Leonard North Street just before 2:30 yesterday afternoon after an excavator struck a gas line, causing a major leak. Residents and one business had to be evacuated from their properties for precautionary reasons and the Camdenton Police blocked the street and redirected traffic. The gas was shut off within 10 minutes and, afterwards, crews checked the surrounding buildings for traces of gas in the air. No injuries were reported.
