A family’s holiday was marred by a house fire early New Year’s Eve.
Four adults and two children were inside a two-story house on Maxine Road when the fire broke out. Dispatch was notified about 12:30 a.m.
The home, owned by Woodrow Chelf, suffered structural damage but the fire was contained mainly to two upstairs rooms, according to Magnolia Firefighter Mike Cottrell. There also was smoke and water damage.
Magnolia, Buffalo and LaRue County firefighters were at the scene about four hours.
