Fire near Arcadia claims farmhouse

February 4, 2013

Hamilton County firefighters struggled to put out a house fire near Arcadia early Monday morning due to an initial shortage of water. They used seven tankers to transport water from the nearest fire hydrant a few miles away to the farmhouse in the 6600 block of East 256th Street. There were no reported injuries. A faulty circuit breaker may have caused the blaze, which was reported at about 12:30 a.m.
