Lincoln County fire officials say the home of a former Winfield police officer is a total loss.
The home caught fire Monday morning while the former officer Bud Chrum’s father, wife and daughter were inside; everyone made it out safely.
Currently, Chrum is in jail facing charges of buying cocaine while in uniform in May. At the time, Chrum said he bought the drugs to replace cocaine missing from the evidence locker.
The Lincoln County Fire Marshall says fire began in the garage and it appears to be accidental.
