The Clark County sheriff’s office reports firemen from the Wayland, Clark County and Alexandria fire departments answered a call to the scene of a fire at Goldie’s Sawmill.
Upon arrival, firemen found the sawmill completely engulfed in flames.
No information on the cause of the fire is available, pending investigation by the Missouri State Fire Marshal.
While on scene at 8:45 p.m. the Clark County fire department requested an ambulance, due to the fact that it was discovered there was a stabbing at the scene of the fire. Two people were transported to hospitals, one to Keokuk, and one was transported to Scotland County Hospital, then to a Columbia, Missouri hospital for further treatment.
Until further investigation of the stabbing incident to determine whether the incident was self defense or assault, no further information is available.
Assisting at the scene were the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Clark County Ambulance, and Wayland Emergency Medical Responders.
