One of Cordell’s newest families lost their home and virtually all of their possessions when their newly-acquired house at 400 South Linwood was destroyed in a March 2 fire. Firefighters received the call at 10:37 a.m. and found the residence fully engulfed when they arrived. Jackie Hymer with the Cordell Fire Department said the fire was apparently started by a blanket which got too close to the fireplace.
