Kinderhook House Fire Believed to be Total Loss
(Kinderhook, Ill)—The Hull-Kinderhook Fire Department rushed to a house fire this morning.
Deputy Sergeant John Pennock of the Pike County Sheriff’s Department says the call came in at 8:54 a.m. No one was in the Kinderhook home at the time of the fire. The home is believed to be a total loss.
The cause of the fire is not believed to be suspicious at this time. The Fire Marshall has been called in to investigate, which is routine procedure.
Pennock says fire crews remained on scene around 4 hours; about half of that time was wetting down the embers to prevent reigniting due to windy conditions. A nearby home sustained some damage from the heat of the fire.
No injuries were reported.
