A house near Tehuacana burned completely this past weekend while the family was away from home.

The house was located at the end of New Hope Lane just across Hwy. 171 from Tehuacana. The home reportedly was owned by Patrick and Kimberly Meyer.
"It probably took me about three minutes to get there," Murphy said. The house was fully involved."
