CANTON, Mo (WGEM) — A person is without a home after a house fire at 320 Jefferson St. in Canton, Missouri

Officials with the Canton Fire Department say crews they arrived at the scene just before 10 p.m. Monday.

"When we arrived on scene we had heavy fire and smoke on the south side," Assistant Fire Chief Josh Wilson said. "We made our attack and extinguished the fire. We are still under investigation on how the fire started."

Fire officials have ruled the fire a total loss.

Fire Chief Joe LaCount says one person lived in the home but that person was not at home at the time of the fire.

He says they have been in contact with the person and they are unsure if that person has insurance.
