Overnight fire destroys house in Puxico

PUXICO, MO (KFVS) - Fire tore through a home in Puxico early Monday morning.

The house was located at the north end of West End.

The fire department was called out to the blaze shortly before 1 a.m.  About an hour later all that was left was a smoldering pile of rubble and the foundation.

Investigators do not believe anyone lived there.

The main concern for firefighters was keeping the fire from spreading to a nearby wooded area.

The Puxico Fire Chief says the fire is not suspicious and the cause is undetermined.
