JOPLIN, Mo. – 4:36 a.m. Thursday morning a two-alarm fire reported at 2029 S Harlem, one block east of 21st and Maiden Lane, in Joplin’s Blendville Neighborhood.
UPDATE: There are two official GO FUND ME drives for the family. We have verified both of them. You can click here for one. And here below is the second as a larger image.
Joplin Fire Dept arrived emergency and established Harlem Command stating, “two-story wood frame structure, heavy fire on the [rear] side.”
Everyone was already out of the house safely.
The fire was centralized to the rear of the residence, a back porch area with a roof, and then the back of the house and extensive smoke damage throughout the structure. Electricity was turned off to the house so the residents are displaced.
Joplin Fire remained on the scene until about 6:37 a.m. We will update this article with more information as it becomes available from authorities.
Early start to the morning with these fellas. Thankfully we were just a few blocks away when the fire call came in. Eric…Posted by Stephen Miller on Thursday, January 13, 2022
