NEOSHO, Mo. — Two residences in Neosho sustained heavy fire damage.

Wednesday morning just before 6:00 crews with the Neosho Fire Department were called to a home north of Neosho Square on E. McCord St. At the scene, one structure was already engulfed in flames as it started to jump to the house next door. Soon, both buildings were fully involved.

Crews were at the site for approximately five hours containing the burn. Investigators said both homes were vacant and neither had utilities hooked up to hem.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office said the cause is undetermined.
