HUNTINGTON COUNTY, Ind. (WANE) Four fire departments responded to the fire at 2574 East 300 North in Huntington County on Wednesday. When the NewsChannel 15 crew arrived, the two-story house appeared to have been destroyed by the flames.
Fire crews responded around 3 p.m. to fight the blaze. Markel, Huntington and Roanoke Fire Departments fought the fire as well as the Southwest Fire District out of Allen County.
Viewer Ryan Hood used Report It to send NewsChannel 15 a picture of the house engulfed in flames.
Markle Assistant Fire Chief Eric Pike said shifting winds did give them problems as they fought the fire that could be seen for miles. It took crews over an hour to get it under control. Luckily, crews did not experience frozen hoses or hydrants.
Pike said they don’t know what started the fire.
An ambulance could be seen on standby but there were no injuries; no one was home at the time of the fire.
The home is a total loss and the Red Cross has been contacted to help the displaced family.
