Scott County house fire under investigation

SCOTT COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Three departments responded to a Monday night fire that destroyed a Scott County home.

The home was on Sandy Wood Road near the Sikeston Drag Strip. Someone who lived inside said no one was home when the fire broke out. Investigators were looking for a cause.

Police say it was the sight of this fire that led to a multi vehicle wreck on the interstate when drivers were looking at the fire instead of the road.
