Pilot Grove home destroyed by fire

A fire destroyed a two story house near the corner of Roe and Third Streets in Pilot Grove Thursday evening.
Pilot Grove Fire Chief Gordon Shay, said a family was burning wood in a wood stove, which got out of hand. He said the family attempted to put the fire out but once they could not, they got out and called the fire department.
The Boonville Fire Department also responded to fire around 7:48 p.m. The BPD brought much needed extra supplies to assist in the extinguishing of the fire.
"I appreciate the City of Boonville coming to help with their man power and equipment," Shay said.
The home is considered a total loss. Shay also said no belongings were saved as well.
A report has not been completed yet. Shay said there will not be an investigation since the cause of the fire has been determined.
