A fire early Tuesday (12.05) morning destroyed a house and shed in Howard County.

The Cresco Community Fire Department says it was called out to 729 2nd Street SW around 12:45 am Tuesday and arrived to find fire consuming the house and shed.  The Fire Department says the owners, John and LeeAnn Drilling and their five children, were not at home when the fire started.
