10 families displaced in Branson condo fire

BRANSON, Mo. (AP) – A three-story Branson condominium building burned to the ground, leaving 10 families homeless.

No injuries were reported from the fire Wednesday at The Woodlands Condos. All but two of the 12 condos were occupied. The three-story building is a complete loss.

Fire officials say everyone had evacuated safely before firefighters arrived. More than 50 firefighters worked the scene. Fire Chief Chris Berndt, of the Western Taney County Fire District, said tanker trucks were used to bring water to the scene because of water pressure problems at nearby fire hydrants.

The cause of the fire has not been determined.
