Battle House Fire
A fire caused extensive damage at 421 High St. Wednesday afternoon, March 12. All nine people living in the home, including seven children, were accounted for when the Washington Fire Department arrived just after 2:30 p.m. Crews spent two hours on the scene. Because windows were open on the second floor, where the fire started, it spread to several concealed spaces in the home, Washington Fire Chief Bill Halmich said. The fire was knocked down within five minutes of arrival, but crews spent about two hours overhauling to make sure the fire was extinguished. Missourian Photo.
