This house on the 400 block of Main Street was turned to charcoal in a matter of minutes just before 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 28. Multiple fire departments responded to the blaze, which broke out on the porch. The fire spread as far as the fences on the property lines, and fire fighters prevented the fire from spreading to nearby properties, which may have suffered smoke damage. Bystanders claimed to have heard ammunition exploding from the heat while the fire was blazing. The fire was contained in less than an hour, at approximately 5:30 p.m. At press time, it was unknown if there were any human injuries, but it was feared that a dog was inside the home. The house was a total loss.
