Owner of burned out Muscatine home being sought

NICHOLS, Iowa (AP) - Officials say they are looking for the owner of an eastern Iowa home that was destroyed by fire, but fear he may not have escaped the blaze.

Officials with the Muscatine County sheriff's office have not released the name of the elderly man who owns the home near Nichols.

Firefighters found the two-story house engulfed in flames Sunday night. High winds hindered efforts to battle the fire, which spread to a nearby building.

Authorities say the house caved into the basement during the fire.
