Firefighters from Humboldt, Chanute, Iola and LaHarpe were called Tuesday to the home of Steve Cox and Janice Acher, Petrolia, after the house caught fire. Cox, who was home when the fire started, escaped the home unscathed. The house was a total loss. The cause of the fire remained undetermined, an Allen County sheriffs deputy said.
