Fire destroys two homes as Moberly firefighters encounter water issues



Problems with getting enough water delayed firefighters from extinguishing a blaze that destroyed two Moberly homes Thursday, the fire department said.

Moberly firefighters were sent Thursday morning to 1045 West End St. W., where a one-and-a-half-story house was on fire, the Moberly Fire Department said in a news release. The fire was also threatening a next-door house.

"The department encountered issues with an adequate water supply, delaying the extinguishment of the fire," Chief Don Ryan said in the release.

No one was hurt, but both homes were a total loss, the department said. The cause was under investigation by Moberly police and a state fire marshal Friday.
