The sirens heard in Columbia, at around 6:15amCT, this morning, Wednesday, April 25, 2018, were Adair County Fire Department firefighters headed for a mobile home fire on Melson Ridge.

Nadene Baker, reached at 6:36amCT at the Bakers' home in Cundiff, said that she could hear the arrival of first responders at that time.

The fire was at a residence a short distance east of Cundiff on Melson Ridge Road, near its intersection with Sand Lick Road. Cundiff is approximately 15 miles from Columbia.

It was discovered by a neighbor, Nadene Baker, said. The occupant of the fire suffered burns, she said, and the community is expecting the EMS to arrive soon.

Her husband, Third District Magistrate Sammy Baker, had been to the scene she said, and was concerned for the victim in the fire.
