Missaukee Co. Home Destroyed In Afternoon Fire

A fire destroyed a home Tuesday afternoon in Missaukee County's Norwich Township.

The fire chief says a passerby spotted flames shooting through the roof, and they believe the fire could have been burning for a few hours.

No one was home at the time of the fire, but firefighters saved two dogs from the garage.

A water boiler in the basement is suspected to have caused the fire.

The homeowner was insured.
