Thursday, 12 December 2013 14:55Beemer and Wisner volunteer fire departments answered a call to an early morning house fire that destroyed the home and much of the belongings of the Phillip Martin family of Beemer.
The family made it out safely after awaking to the fire at about 2 a.m. Tuesday.
Phil works in Norfolk, and Holly is a radiology tech at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in West Point. Their son, Brock, attends West Point-Beemer High School.
The fire appears to have started in an electric circuit in a wall and worked its way up into the attic.
