Falls City Home Deemed Total Loss After Fire
12/01/2016

(KLZA)-- A Falls City home has been deemed a total loss following a Wednesday morning fire.

Falls City Volunteer Fire Department Chief Ken Simpson says firefighters were called to the Tom and Mary Lunsford residence at 920 McLean Street shortly before 9:00.

He said their daughter Andrea Lunsford and an infant grandchild, who also live at the two-story home, were home at the time of the fire and got out safely.

Simpson says the State Fire Marshall Office determined a space heater plugged into the same outlet along with several other devices, behind a television, overloaded the outlet and caused a short.

He says the fire burned the television set and cabinet, spread up a wall and burned the living room before spreading into the kitchen where it was extinguished. 

10 members of the Falls City Volunteer Fire Department and eight members of the Falls City Rural Fire Department responded to the call.  Firemen were at the site until about 1:30 Wednesday afternoon.
