A fire in Jersey County destroyed a home on Saturday.  The fire was called in just after 4pm and was finally brought under control around 10pm Saturday.  Fire crews from the QEM Fire Protection District along with Fieldon, Brighton and Godfrey responded to the home in the 26-thousand block of Route 3.  No one was injured.

Fire officials say the homeowners were apparently shopping for the day and no one was at home at the time.  The house is a total loss and so far there is no cause for the fire.
