Structure Fire at 10761 I-70 Drive Northeast on December 22, 2016

The Boone County Fire District responded to a residential structure fire at 10761 I-70 Drive Northeast, Lot 10 on December 22, 2016. Upon our arrival we found a two story A-frame home fully involved (fire blowing out both ends (see below and for fire pictures).The occupants of this home (young couple and their two year old son) were able to get out safely, but everything they owned was destroyed (including their Christmas presents). They were renting this home and did not have renters insurance. The Fire District has purchased some toys for the two year old to replace some of the lost Christmas presents and will deliver those today, but this family will need much more help. The Red Cross is providing some assistance, as is the Missouri Pay It Forward Free Store. However, a GoFundMe account has been set up to help them recover ( Please consider donating to this very worthy cause, so that this family remembers this Christmas for what their friends, neighbors and their community did for them instead of their very tragic loss. Please forward this message to your friends and neighbors. Thanks, Scott
