CAMDENTON, Mo. – Authorities say a two-story vacation home is sliding into the Lake of the Ozarks.
Mid-County Fire Protection District Chief Scott Frandsen has had crews at the home north of Camdenton since Monday. The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports that the house has moved about 36 inches closer to the lake since then.
Officials with Laclede Electric Cooperative in Camdenton called firefighters to the site.
The electric company discovered the problem when answering a call from members of the homeowners’ association.
Frandsen says none of the experts he’s consulted know what’s causing the problem.
Frandsen says there are booms on site to contain the debris and keep it in the cove so it doesn’t spread all over the lake. But he says there’s not much else the fire department can do.
The house is owned by a St. Louis man, but authorities declined to give his name.
