Boonville Fires Damage Homes
Kriss and Gene Royer's home filled with smoke after their furnace blew up. Their house sits at 519 High Street surrounded by fire tape.
A day him nor his wife could have ever imagined.
The Royer's home was one of eight buildings suffering damage with eight fires popping up at the same time. It was more than Boonville Firefighters could handle.
Rescue teams from all over Mid-Missouri rushed in to assist Boonville while officials told the Royer's it wasn't safe to stay in their home.
Ameren UE provides gas for Boonville and workers there say residents should not turn their gas off.
Ameren UE hopes to have everything back to normal by Tuesday morning.
