House fire early Tuesday morning in rural Nevada

On 2/16/21 around 4:15am the Nevada Fire Department along with Compton Junction Fire Department, Milo and Deerfield Fire Departments responded to a double wide that was on fire on CR 1350 just north of Minie Ball Road in rural NW Vernon County.

The bitter cold outside caused many problems for the firemen freezing water and hazardous road conditions played a huge factor in this fire.

The house was occupied by Jake Evans and five other people including 4 children, no one was injured in this fire and the family was provided shelter from the cold by a neighbor.
