UPDATE: Fire Damages Culver Home

Todd PittengerJuly 3, 2018

A fire, possibly caused by fireworks, badly damaged a home in the Ottawa County community of Culver late Tuesday morning.

Ottawa County Emergency Management tells KSAL News the front portion of the home, located at 205 Main Street in Culver, was fully engulfed in flames when first responders arrived.

The family was able to escape without serious injury. A female did suffer a burn on her arm while moving a car away from the flames. She was treated by EMS at the scene and released.

At least one firefighter suffered from heat related illness issues, but did not require transport to the hospital.

Several pets, including a cat and her kittens, died in the fire.

The home was left uninhabitable. The North Central Kansas Chapter of the American Red Cross, along with a local minister, is assisting the family.

Officials believe the fire was started by the careless use of fireworks.
