Emporia assisted living facility destroyed by fire

KSAL StaffJuly 5, 2014

Nearly two dozen residents of an Emporia assisted living facility are looking for new homes after the building was destroyed by fire.

KVOE-AM reports all 21 residents of Sterling House made it out safely after the fire started late Friday night.

Emporia Fire Department Battalion Chief Rich Gould says firefighters were called to the facility just before midnight and found flames already coming through the roof.

Gould says Sterling House residents were taken to Newman Regional Health to spend the night.

The cause of the fire has not been determined. Investigators were focusing on the kitchen as the possible origination point.
