Fire Damages Rural Farina Home
Farina Fire Chief Jim Guerrettaz says the fire at the Tim Spencer home on Iola Lane four miles east of Farina began in the living room around the wood burning stove and burned a hole through the ceiling and roof. Guerrettaz reported for some reason the smoke detectors in the home didn't go off. Spencer and his wife woke up and were able to escape after hearing the stove pipe fall and hit the floor. He reports the large living room was full of smoke, but there was limited damage to the rest of the home.
Guerrettaz says the residence is a secondary home for the Spencer's who live in Harrisburg. Farina Firemen received the call at 4:30 Friday morning and were on the scene for about two hours. St. Peter Firemen stood by at the Farina Station in the event of another fire.
