GREENE COUNTY, Mo. — Firefighters worked to put out a house engulfed in flames on 6946 E. Farm Road 132 in Greene County Wednesday, Dec. 2.
According to Greg Smith, the battalion chief of Strafford, they were dispatched just before 4 p.m. for a fire alarm.
The fire alarm upgraded to a house fire just a few minutes after the dispatch call.
Smith said fire departments from Marshfield, Ebenezer, Logan-Rogersville and Battlefield were on the scene to put the fire out.
The biggest challenge, according to Smith, was the water supply. Firefighters are having to shuttle in water. The rain as well as the narrow drive with curves is also slowing the firefighters down.
Smith said the people inside the home were able to make it out with no injuries but it’s unknown what caused the fire was.
A popping sound was heard from the burning home. The sound was confirmed to be dozens of rounds of ammo.
Logan Rogersville is the commanding fire department is in control of the scene.
