FORT CROWDER CONSERVATION AREA (Rural Neosho, Mo.) — Shortly after 1:00 AM Sunday morning Newton County dispatch received a call regarding a vehicle fire in the conservation area East of Crowder College.

As Newton County Sheriff’s Deputies and Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived alongside Neosho Fire Protection District they were faced with a fully engulfed vehicle fire.

No one was in or around the vehicle. It was located about a mile north of State Highway D on Owl Road.

It was determined the vehicle could perhaps be a Dodge Journey. Vehicle identification and owner could not be confirmed due to the intensity of the fire.

The vehicle was towed by Poor’s Wrecker of Neosho.
