A local family of five is coping with the loss of their home Monday.
Just Sunday night the Creech family in Frazeysburg lost their home to a fire that crews worked to control for more than five hours. The blaze started on the porch of the home and when father Mark Creech couldn't extinguish it, he called 911. When Frazeysburg, Dresden, and Licking Township Fire Departments arrived the home was fully engulfed and is now considered a total loss. Now the family is working to move on.
