ARAB, Mo. - A firefighter usually helping put out fires at other's homes got some help from some of his fellow workers Wednesday.

A blaze destroyed Adam Pedigo's house near Arab. 

Todd McGregor with the Zalma Fire Department said they got a call about 2:30 Wednesday afternoon.

"What makes it bad is this is it being a brother firefighter," McGregor said.

He says the home was fully engulfed when crews arrived on the scene.  No one was injured and the cause of the fire is undetermined.

Crews from Zalma, Lowndes, and Marble Hill responded.
