Early-morning fire destroys family’s Tecumseh home

Firefighters with Tecumseh, Caulfield, Lick Creek, Bakersfield, Dora and Howell Rural VFDs responded to a home fire around 3 a.m. Monday at Dub and Crystal Williams’ home on Highway 160 in Tecumseh. Several departments brought tankers and pumpers to provide water for the firefighting efforts. Firefighters also used a portable pump to pull water from the Williams’ backyard swimming pool and transfer it to the trucks so the equipment could stay at the scene continuously instead of having to shuttle back and forth to get water.
