Melcher-Dallas — Melcher-Dallas fire crews, Pleasantville Fire, the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and MidAmerican Energy all responded to a fire early Wednesday morning (approx. 4:30 a.m.) on the north section of Melcher-Dallas. When fire crews arrived the fire could be seen coming out of the roof. Those inside the structure were able to get out uninjured and crews were able to contain the fire without losing the home completely. The deed to the home is believed to be held by Ezequiel and Esmeralda Robles. The cause of the fire remains unknown at this time.
