The Hancock fire department was called to a house fire at the corner of Pacific Ave and 6th Street. The call came in at 9:10 p.m. and the Hancock Department paged the Morris Fire Department for mutual aid as the home was fully engulfed in flames. Everyone was able to get out safely.
The home is owned by Corbin Nohl, of Hancock, who lives there along with his wife and four children. Responding to the call along with the fire departments were the Hancock First Responders and Stevens County Ambulance.
Fighting the fire were six apparatus and 20 Hancock firemen and four trucks and another 20 firemen from Morris. They remained on the scene until 11:52 p.m. The Hancock department was called out again at 8:30 a.m. the next morning for a flare up in the house. Twelve men and four apparatus responded.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation but the home appears to be a total loss.
