LAGRANGE – The call just after 7 yesterday morning on Bennoch Road in Lagrange.
Fire crews from five-departments responding on scene. The Lagrange fire chief says the home was fully engulfed with flames coming from the back.
The family living there was alerted by their smoke detector and were able to make it out safely. Resident Brent Lippincott says he’s just relieved they are all okay. “It was about 7:30, i saw the smoke on the wall, i didn’t really see the flames, i called the fire department, and when they got here i started seeing flames, i was just happy i had my wife and kids out of the house.”
Four cats are unaccounted for.
The cause of the fire remains unknown. The state’s fire marshal is investigating a cause.
