Fire destroys Head-O-Lake Road home

By Melissa Burnor

Ottawa Lake Fire Chief Brad Beck said he knew the situation was dire before he even left his house Sunday morning. He could see the flames shooting up a half-mile away where a neighbor’s house was on fire on Head-0-Lake Road.

“I knew we were up against the wall,” Beck said.

A series of unfortunate events that day led to the family home of Randy and Lisa Kunkel and their two children going up in flames, destroying most of their personal possessions in mere hours. A family cat perished in the blaze.
