It looks like a wood stove is to blame for a fire that destroyed a home in Lagrange Tuesday morning.The call to firefighters came in at 6:00 AM.By the time they got to the scene on Brimstone Lane, the structure was engulfed in flames.The two owners, Gayle Milian and Willard Knights, were home at the time the fire broke out. Milian says, “I put wood in the wood stove and I sat down to have a cup of coffee and I looked over and I saw smoke and then there was fire.”Both made it out safely along with all their pets, six cats and three dogs.The Lagrange Fire Chief believes the woodstove is what caused the fire. He says some piping from the stove had rusted out.The homeowners did not have insurance. A neighbor is offering a mobile home until they can get a new home, and the Red Cross has been called in to help.
