Volunteer firefighters work Tuesday at the scene of a house fire at the historic Corrick family house in Parsons. Volunteer firefighters from Parsons, Thomas and Leading Creek were able to extinguish the blaze and no one was reported injured. The structure and its contents did incur considerable damage. Parsons VFD chief Charles Lloyd said there was an estimated $40,000 in structural damage and $20,000 in damage to personal property. The house is located across from the Corrick’s?Ford Battlefield in Parsons, and it was built in 1851. It is owned by Rose Marie Liggit and rented to Theodore and Crissandra Baker, according to Parsons city officials. Lloyd said the origins of the fire have not been determined and are still under investigation.
