Holliday Fire Cause is Unknown

February 27, 2019

Early Tuesday morning (February 26, 2019) Madison-West Monroe Fire Protection Department was called to a fully involved structure fire at 101 W. Tilden street in Holliday, MO. The building is now operated by Clement Automotive Repair, formerly Menefee Welding and Electric building.

Upon arrival of the first firefighter found heavy smoke and flames showing from the structure and with no occupants inside the structure.

After sizing up the scene planed the attack. With the structure not safe to enter the plan of attack was a defensive outside knockdown.

With the help from Paris Rural Fire Protection Department with two trucks and seven firefighters, Eastern Randolph County with two trucks and five firefighters and North East Randolph (Cairo) with two trucks and three fire fighters; using five tanker trucks; we scuttled 12,500 of water from the City of Madison.

At the time of departure from the scene the cause of the fire was still undetermined.

**Due to explosive tanks and several automobiles surrounding the structure, no one was allowed near the fire. The Monroe County Appeal photos were taken a few hours after the fire was extinguished and it was safe to be near again.** Thank you to the Madison-West Monroe Fire Protection Department for this release.
