new boston fireA rural New Boston home has been destroyed by fire. The blaze broke out Sunday night at 10:30 says New Boston Fire Chief Mike DeFrieze. He says the sub-zero temperatures created some problems in fighting the fire, like water freezing. A couple lived in the home located at 851 Mannon Road and they were able to escape without injury. The home is a complete loss. A cause has not been determined at this time. Firefighters were on the scene until 1:30 this morning. The New Boston Fire Department received mutual aid from the Joy, Eliza and Keithsburg Fire Departments.
