After an evening of cooking, in preparation for Mexican night at The Bar, Janet Terca went to bed early. Luckily she woke up sometime after 11 PM, and while walking from her bedroom to the bathroom she discovered her entire kitchen was engulfed in flames.

Flames were up on the ceiling, it was more than I could handle, said Janet Monday afternoon as she and her friend Beth Hupp worked to make a list of items damaged or destroyed by the fire for her insurance company. Shes just lucky she woke up, said Beth.

Janet called the fire department, got her two cats and escaped the house. Presho and Kennebec fire departments responded to the house fire. According to Presho fire chief Donnie Manger the fire appeared to have started in the kitchen. The kitchen was totally destroyed while the dining room, porch, pantry and bathroom were heavily damaged. The entire main floor suffered heat and smoke damage. The two rooms upstairs also had smoke damage.

Friends and co-workers from The Bar came to the house after receiving a call for help from Janet. We got a few things out the front door, Janet said. Her car, which was parked near the porch, appeared to be undamaged. The keys were in the house, I couldnt get to them to move the car.

The Terca house, located at north Main, suffered water damage when the Medicine Creek flooded in 1998. Janet bought the house and remodeled it at that time.

Janet is currently staying with her parents, Buck and Norma Terca, but has made arrangements to move into temporary housing in Presho while she awaits information from insurance company regarding the damages.

We had a quick response from our crew and Kennebec. Thankfully, Janet woke up and got out of the house, sometimes people are not so lucky. Please check the smoke detectors in your home to be sure they are in working order, said fire chief Donnie Manger.
