Firefighters have burned down the home where five members of a Logan County family were beaten to death in 2009.

Ten members of the Beason Fire Department set the small, white, one-story house ablaze. Rick and Ruth Gee and three of their children were killed there by Christopher Harris, Rick’s former son in law.

The Beason Fire chief said the Gee family asked him for help demolishing the house. The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency signed off on the plan.
