A Boone couple is making plans to rebuild, after fire destroyed their home this morning.

Rosanna Kraft was in Tama having lunch with friend, when she got a call from her husband.  He told her their home was on fire.

Kraft says her husband was working in the shed and thought it was getting cloudy.  Turned out those clouds were actually smoke rising from the home’s sunroom.

Kraft says her husband managed to save the family’s dog and a few photos.

She said, “One good thing my husband says this is second house we’ve built, he said well we learn in the other two what we want and don’t want now. So I guess we’re going to rebuild.”

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
