Crews extinguish vacant house fire in Elkhart


Elkhart City Fire crews put out a vacant house fire early Thursday morning.

It was called in at 12:06 a.m. at the corner of Aspenwald Avenue and Monroe Street. That intersection is just one block south of Middlebury Street.

Dispatchers tell us that fire was put out just after 12:30. The fire chief on duty tells FOX 28 the home has been vacant for more than a year.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but crews are still trying to figure out what cause the blaze.
