BELL CITY, MO (KFVS) - Bell City firefighters were called to a house fire sometime before 3 a.m. Wednesday.

At this time we know a house on Plum St. has been destroyed. As of 4:30 a.m. fire crews were still on the scene.

Bell City Fire Chief Josh Speakman tells us no one was inside the home when the fire began.

In fact, the chief says the family that owns the home, the Yount family, are out of town right now.

He did say the fire marshal has been called in to investigate the blaze but at this time there's no preliminary cause. The chief tells us it might be hard to determine a cause because the home is destroyed.

Neighbor Scott Pikey also told us it was the Yount family who lived in the home. This is the same family we spoke with in a previous story last January.

According to Pikey he heard an explosion and came outside to see the home engulfed in flames.
