The blaze was reported at 316 Wilson where Jennifer Girratono and 2 children reside. They were not home at the time of the fire. The owner of the single story structure was listed as Brenda Owings.

The Chillicothe Fire Department reported the losses as $40,000 to the property and $10,000 to the contents.

Chillicothe firefighters said they arrived to find the north and west sides of the home fully engulfed in flames. Firefighters initially attempted what was described as interior attack, but had to back out because of unsafe conditions. The fire was brought under control from the outside.

A representative of the state fire marshal's office was called to the scene to investigate the cause of the blaze. Chillicothe Fire Chief, Darrell Wright, said the fire was not suspicious.

The Chillicothe Fire Department said a home to the north received damage to its exterior siding because of heat from the blaze.

Firefighters were on the scene about 90 minutes. No injuries were reported.

On a separate story, a Chillicothe emergency services ambulance was involved in a 4 vehicle traffic accident on northbound Interstate 35 in Clay County early yesterday evening shortly after 5 o'clock. No injuries were reported in the rear-end chain reaction accident. Damage to the ambulance was listed as moderate. No patients were in the ambulance.
