Kirksville house fire considered suspicious

Firefighters consider the cause of Sunday's fire suspicious.

We now have new information on an early morning house fire in Kirksville Sunday.

Firefighters arrived at 1901 Teal Drive just after 7:30 a.m.

No one was injured, but overnight snow and windy conditions gave firefighters a difficult time battling the blaze.

After about 45 minutes they were able to get the flames under control and assess the damage.

â??You know, the guys arrived on scene, had a pretty good knock down, for today's conditions and basically nobody got hurt, and we were successful,â?? said Captain Joe Schilling of the Kirksville Fire Department.

Crews are still investigating the exact cause of the fire, but they say it is suspicious in nature.

The interior of the home sustained an estimated $50,000 to $60,000 in damages. Now investigation into the incident continues.
