MOKANE, Mo. - A collection has started to aid victims of a Sunday afternoon fire in Mokane that heavily damaged the home of Lisa Underwood.

Volunteer firemen from the South Callaway Fire Protection District and Central Fire Protection District responded to the fire at 3:13 p.m. Sunday at 319 First St.

Scott Meislin, general manager of the Super 8 Motel in Kingdom City, has started a collection to benefit Underwood, a former employee of the motel.

"Until about a year ago, Lisa worked here at the motel," Meislin said. "We wanted to start a collection for her. So far, we have collected clothing, a couch, a loveseat, a washer and a dryer. People are responding. This motel is the official collection point for people to make their donations. We are located next to the Petro Truck Stop in Kingdom City," Meislin said.
