JELLOWAY — An afternoon fire destroyed a large old farmhouse and left a couple and their son homeless at 21890 Ravin Road, off Ohio 3 just north of Jelloway on Monday. Owner Gary Brennstuhl was in the woods behind the house cutting wood when he saw smoke. When he got to the house, a passerby had already called the Eastern Knox County Joint Fire District.

    What a tragedy. His sister just passed away New Years Day. This family needs everyone’s prayers for all the heartache they have had in just 3 short days.
