BOONE COUNTY, Mo. - A fire that started late Friday night has left one home on West Chapel Drive in Boone County with over $200,000 worth of damage.
According to Assistant Chief Gale Blomenkamp with the Boone County Fire Protection District, the fire was reported around 11:45 p.m. Friday after a 9-year-old woke up to the smell of smoke inside the house.
Six individuals in the home at the time, and all made it out safely. Multiple rooms were destroyed, causing about $225,000 worth of damage, but the home is not a total loss.
