NEW KNOXVILLE — An early morning fire on Sunday destroyed a home along Country Road 33A.
New Knoxville Fire Chief Scott Schroer said his department received a call shortly after 1:30 a.m. Sunday to respond to a fire at a residence located at 06833 County Road 33A, between Howell and Glynwood/New Knoxville roads. When crews arrived, the fire had spread to much of the structure.
“The second story and roof were engulfed,” Schroer said. “The house was a total loss.”
ST. MARYS — Cloudy skies and the threat of rain showers did little to quell the crowd that turned out to greet Santa Claus as part of his annual visit to St. Marys.
Amid an escort of police cars and fire trucks, Santa Claus made his way down Spring Street and into his house near the shelterhouse along the Miami and Erie Canal as Winterfest and the Festival of Lights kicked off on Sunday. Even before Santa made his way to his home, dozens of eager children lined up to tell him what they wanted for Christmas this year.
