Three People Dead In House Fire Near Rolla

A house fire near Rolla Saturday night has claimed the lives of three people.

The Phelps County Sheriff’s Department says an off-duty deputy, who lived near the house, responded to the fire call, and noticed a young boy outside.

The deputy attended to the boy until paramedics arrived.

Crews from several area fire departments responded but were unable to get inside because the house was fully engulfed.

The names of the victims have not been released. The fire is under investigation.
