Life can quickly change as Melinda Reece, Melvern, discovered the afternoon of Sunday, June 10. Reece had just walked out to her mailbox when she saw her home located at 430 NW Lincoln St. was on fire.

According to Gary Kitt, Osage County Fire District No. 3, Melvern, they received the call at 3:26 p.m. They were assisted by the fire departments from Lyndon and Waverly. Fire departments were on the scene until approximately 10 p.m.

“Upon arriving we found that the structure was heavily involved,” the fire department’s Facebook post stated.

No one was inside the home at the time of the fire. Reece did rescue one dog. There were no reports of injuries.

Besides the home, a vehicle that was parked in the attached garage was also destroyed. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Reece has been living at her daughter’s home since the fire.
