Fire completely destroyed a Little Creek residence occupied by Terry Arthur early Thursday morning.

The structure was a total loss before firemen arrived.

Arthur told firemen that the fire likely started in a stovepipe from a wood stove.

The dwelling was an old Arthur homestead in a remote hollow off Little Creek Road, a few miles from Creston.

There was no insurance on the dwelling.

There were no injuries.

The Grantsville VFD was dispatched about 12:30 a.m., with a warning that ammunition was exploding in the burning structure.

The Elizabeth VFD also responded to the fire scene with Minnie Hamilton EMS.
