MOUNTAIN GROVE, Mo. (KY3) - A massive fire overnight destroyed one family’s home in Mountain Grove, but investigators say no one was hurt.

The Mountain Grove Fire Department responded to a fully-involved house fire around 3 a.m. Monday. Everyone inside the home escaped safely before the fire intensified.

Five people were in the home when the fire started, including four adults who investigators say need 24-hour supervision. American Red Cross is working to help the five people find a temporary place to stay. The Mountain Grove Fire Department says the victims are in need of several items.

It’s unclear how or when the fire started. Mountain Grove firefighters shared several photos of the blaze on their Facebook page that show major damage to most of the house.

The Norwood Fire Department and TCMH EMS also assisted at the scene.
