The Coggon Fire Department was called out Saturday morning to a house fire at a farm house on Monticello Road, two miles east of Coggon just off Highway 13. The house was considered a complete loss. Firefighters determined the fire started in the basement. The cause is under investigation, but does not appear to be suspicious. The house was owned by Lois Greif of rural Coggon. A 12 year old boy was at home at the time of the fire, but escaped unharmed. Coggon Fire Department was assisted by Prairieburg, Central City, Ryan, Troy Mills, and Monticello.
