MARION COUNTY — Centralia Fire Protection District firefighters, along with mutual aid from Kell, Salem, Odin, and Sandoval with tankers responded around 9:20 p.m. Saturday to a house fire on Burge Road south of Route 161, and southeast of Hubbards Woods.
A passerby called 9-1-1 and report fire already coming from several windows and heavy, black smoke from the structure.
Upon their arrival, firefighters reportedly found the west end of the home already engulfed in flames.
Unfortunately, the home is a total loss and the mother’s co-workers at Murray Center have posted a note on Facebook requesting help for the family.
Firefighters were on scene until around 1 a.m. Sunday morning and no injuries were reported.
