Cause of Corrigan fire under investigation
CORRIGAN — Arson investigators are still looking at work on a house fire on Industrial Road in Corrigan that David Armstrong's home and nearly everything he and his three small boys own. "But most of those things can be replaced," said Corrigan Fire Chief John Cobb. "Thankfully no one was home when the fire started. There were no injuries." Cobb said when firefighters arrived, the house was already fully involved. "The fire got a jump on us and there was nothing we could do to stop it," Cobb said. The fire chief is very familiar with the structure. The 1950s-era home had once belonged to a close friend. The friend sold it 10 or 15 years ago and additions had been made.
