A three-member family in Bogard who lost their home earlier this week is receiving assistance from the American Red Cross Heart of Missouri Chapter.  A fire Monday destroyed the house on Fourth Street.

The family was given financial resources to help with food and clothing.  A press release from the Red Cross said the family previously secured their own lodging.  They were in contact with other community resources when they were referred to the Red Cross.

No injuries were reported in Monday’s fire and the cause remains under investigation.
