WELLSTON, MO (KTVI) - A two story home caught on fire Monday morning near the intersection of Plymouth and Stephen Jones in Wellson.  The home was vacant.  Children could be seen running from occupied neighboring homes.

Firefighters were able to take control of the situation.  The fire appears to be out.  But, it looks like the home may be a total loss.  Surrounding homes have been spared through the firefighter's efforts.

A firefighter was hit by an aerial spray while working on the fire.  The pressure from the spray was enough to knock him down.  He appears to be in good condition.
