BELLEVILLE – A house on Deloro Road in the Madoc Township hamlet of Eldorado burned to the ground Wednesday night, leaving a family homeless.
No one was hurt in the fire.
The Madoc Township Fire Department  received the phone call at 8:15 p.m.
“There was nobody in the house. All the occupants were out of the house,” Jason Gear, the township’s fire chief, told QNet News.
“It was a total loss there.”
The family had insurance, he said, adding that he has heard that the family will be staying at a motel for the time being.
Gear said he had seen some posts on Facebook about people trying to help the family.
The house was a single-family dwelling, said Chris Mitchell, the treasurer of Madoc Township.
