A fire that begun shortly after midnight on Sunday morning destroyed the home of Chris and Cathy Liles in Lehigh. Although the exterior walls of the structure are still standing, the interior was burned and the roof collapsed.

An assistance fund has been established in the name of the family at Hillsboro State Bank.
