Home a total loss, occupant safe after house fire in Mokane overnight

MOKANE, Mo - UPDATE 4:38am: Firefighters tell ABC 17 News the home is a total loss, but say the man living there was able to make it out safely.

They say two departments responded to the scene around 1:00 Friday morning and found the home fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters tell us the fire did spread to another home nearby, but say they were able to save that home. The second home did sustain some exterior damage, but it's unclear how much repairs will cost right now.

Firefighters say they have not yet determined a cause and say they'll stay on the scene for a few more hours to monitor hot spots and to make sure nothing ignites again.
