Fireworks could be to blame for a fire that destroyed an old, unoccupied home southwest of Burden on July. Fire crews were called to the Schooley residence at 12267 U.S. Highway 160 around 6 p.m. An old farmhouse was engulfed in flames.
Capt. Dan McClaskey, with Cowley County Rural Fire Dist. 3, said the home was not the family’s residence. It was a house that could no longer be occupied and was used for shop and storage space.
