A home was declared a total loss after fire tore through it around 4 a.m. Friday morning.

The David Powers family was alerted to the fire by their dog early Friday. Flames were shooting through the roof by the time Dickinson County Fire Department No. 1 arrived on the scene.

Fire Chief Paul Froelich said the family was being assisted by Red Cross and does have a small renters insurance policy.

"Everybody got out OK," Froelich said.

Froelich also submitted a picture of the structure at 2672 Oat Road, which is about 1 mile north of Interstate 70, between Nail and Paint roads. Froelich said the photo was taken using the department's drone.
