Firefighters battled a house fire at the corner of Hough and McKinley streets for more than an hour Monday afternoon. The family was able to escape safely, but Latrisha Jones and her family will be unable to salvage much of anything, let alone return to live there. The children got out with the clothes they were wearing, and neighbors quickly pitched in to find coats and shoes for them. The Heart of Missouri American Red Cross arrived on the scene to help the family however they could.
