DONGOLA, IL (KFVS) -

Firefighters were called back to a house on southeast Front St. in Dongola on Monday evening, Nov. 23 after a hot spot flared up.

They originally responded to house fire early on Monday morning.

According to Union County dispatch, fire crews were called out to the home around 3:30 a.m.

The Anna Fire Department reports the fire was likely caused by a wood stove.
