Fire Destroys Home
On March 8 a fire destroyed the Goddard Ridge Road home of Sardis residents Terry and Krista McPeek. The call came in shortly after 2 p.m. to the Monroe County 911 Dispatchers.
Upon arriving, the Sardis Volunteer Fire Department found the structure engulfed in flames.
Sardis was aided in fighting the fire by the Antioch and Clarington Volunteer Fire Departments.
The Ohio Fire Marshal reported that recessed lighting in the dining room ceiling appeared to be the ignition point of the fire. The McPeek home was a total loss. However, some family keepsakes were able to be saved.
Donations may be sent to the Citizen’s National Bank, care of Terry and Krista McPeek, P.O. Box 230, Sardis, OH 43946.
