Yellow caution tape surrounds the home located at 420 S Holbrook which caught fire early Tuesday morning. Fort Scott Fire Chief Paul Ballou said three Fort Scott Fire Department units, including eight firefighters, as well as four Scott Township Fire Department units, including 10 firefighters, responded to the home shortly after midnight. Ballou said the home was greatly damaged, however most of it was cosmetic. The residents were not in the home at the time of the fire, according to Ballou. A cause of the fire was not yet determined as of press time. The case is still under investigation. (Michael Pommer/Tribune)
