Osage Beach firemen spent more than four hours on the scene of an early-morning fire Feb. 8 that heavily damaged two structures in the vicinity of 1050 and 1054 McField Road in Osage Beach.

The Osage Beach Fire Protection District dispatched to a report of a house on fire and another threatened about 4:45 a.m. Other structures were threatened due to a brush fire flamed by strong winds which were pushing the fire towards an adjacent structure.

While crews attacked the structure fires, other crews extinguished the fast-moving brush fire and protected other structures. The brush fire was extinguished and units worked to put out the smoldering pile in each of the houses.

A fishing boat parked next to one of the structures was also damaged

Crews continued to attack the fire until daylight and then switched to a mop-up operation. After the fires were extinguished and crews cleared the scene at 9:08 a.m., the scene was turned over to the Osage Beach Fire investigation unit.

No one was at home at either of the structures, and no injuries were reported. The cause was undetermined at the time of the fire.

Agencies responding were Camdenton Fire, Lake Ozark Fire, Osage Beach Fire, Sunrise Beach Fire and Osage Beach Ambulance.
