GALENA, KS.--- A late-night fire destroys a home in Galena. Both Galena and Baxter Springs fire departments responded to a call about a blaze at 13th and Wall around 10:45 last night. Crews worked until about 3 a.m. making sure it wouldn't spread to surrounding grass areas due to high winds. Galena Fire Chief Bill Hall says one person was home at the time, and the occupant believes a candle could have been the cause. No one was injured. The fire is still under investigation.
