Central Missouri Town Devastated By Fire

Almost half of a small town in central Missouri burned over the weekend as a wildfire quickly spread from a farm field and destroyed or damaged 23 buildings.

One person was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and the entire community of Wooldridge had to be evacuated on Saturday.

The flames were sparked by a combine in a field that was harvesting crops.

Part of interstate 70 had to be shut down for nearly two hours because of heavy smoke.
