“Christina Q. Cross, Carson, Connor, Buckeye and I are very, very grateful for the love and prayers from our community and many friends near and far! We thank GOD we are all safe, as well as our neighbors and first responders.

The fire didn’t win! We may have lost the house, the cars and everything else, but the flags still fly and our spirit is still strong!”

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The district Cross represents includes Hancock County , Hardin County and a portion of Logan County.
