Fire Destroys Bellwood Community House

A Geneva County family is without a roof over their heads after a fire destroys their home.

Fortunately, Steve and Sarah Rodgers were not home when the three-bedroom structure was engulfed in flames.

It's located at the intersection of Geneva County Highways 85 and 45 in the Bellwood Community, across the street from the town's volunteer fire department.

One passing motorist says flames were jumping more than 15-feet into the sky.

He immediately called 911 from his cell phone.

Authorities have not listed the cause of origin for the fire.

The home is considered a total loss.
