The Little Dixie Fire Protection District is investigating after a fire broke out in Audrain County in the early morning hours on Saturday.
Little Dixie Chief Ken Hoover says fire crews were called to 10190 Audrain Road 371, off of Audrain Road 306 after a passerby on Highway 22 spotted the blaze.
When firefighters arrived, they found a modular home that was nearly burned to the ground.
Hoover reports the home had sold recently, and until today [Monday] investigators did not know who the new owner was. The house was in the process of being renovated.
The cause of the fire has not been released.
