Fire on Grand Avenue in Hannibal

Fire late Friday morning brought Hannibal firefighters to 615 Grand. Dianna Melton was home at the time. She describes how she discovered the fire.

I was in my bedroom and I was watching a movie. I got up and I went to the kitchen and I was going to get something to drink. Well, I walked across my bedroom floor, I walked across my dining room floor and none of the the floors got hot. I was barefooted; I would have felt it. When I went back into my bedroom I seen smoke coming up through the floor board. Not no fire, just smoke. My son was still asleep, so I ran in and told him, ‘Eric, get up, the house is on fire!’
