Fire damages Neosho home; no injuries cited

NEOSHO, Mo. — A fire that damaged a home west of Neosho on Tuesday night is believed to have had an electrical source.

The Neosho Fire Department and the Seneca Area Fire Protection District responded to a report at 8:30 p.m. of a fire at the home of Nicholas Calton on Norway Road.

Neosho fire Chief Mike Eads said the living room of the single-story house was in flames when firefighters arrived. He said the occupants discovered the fire as they were returning home and escaped any injury.

Firefighters, who were on the scene three hours, confined fire damage to the living room, but there was smoke damage throughout the house, Eads said.
