An early morning house fire tragically killed a mother and three children in Boone county on Sunday.
Reports say when firefighters arrived about 1 a.m., the back half of the house was fully engulfed in flames.
Extreme cold temperatures hampered efforts to fight the fire, resulting in help from 8 other fire departments.
When we hear about house fires, especially when a fatality occurs, we are reminded to practice fire safety, especially this time of year when we are fighting the change in weather.
