A fire engulfed a Shiloh home, 9 Linden Drive, early in the morning on Friday, Nov. 30.
Neighbors who witnessed the fire indicated that flames could be seen as early as 4 a.m. Fire fighters arrived to the scene at approximately 4:30 a.m.
Witnesses say that the two occupants, the owner Charlotte Edwards and her husband George Edwards, were able to get out safely and no one was injured.
Drivers were diverted from Lebanon Avenue on to side streets that had no outlet, frustrating drivers during their morning commute.
The cause of the fire remains unknown at this time. This story will continue to be updated by the O’Fallon Weekly.
