SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) - Sikeston firefighters faced an added danger when they responded to a house fire Tuesday night.
Sergeant Rick Colbert with Sikeston DPS says the fire started just after 8 p.m. at 1724 Ford Street.
A family of four lives in the home.
Sergeant Colbert says the fire damaged the power line leading from the house to a nearby pole, so they had to wait for the power company to arrive before they could begin fighting the flames.
He says it looks like the fire may have started in the kitchen.
There is no word yet on an official cause.
