The pickup was occupied by two individuals, one wearing dark colors and the other in light colors. The homeowner is still determining if anything was stolen.

A home at 13163 F Road west of Delta was destroyed by a fire that was reported at about 2 a.m. The home was occupied by Dale and Deanna Haag and their family.

The American Red Cross was contacted to provide temporary housing for the family.
