Edwardsburg home a total loss after overnight fire


An Edwardsburg family is without a home after an overnight fire tore through theirs on Friday morning.

It broke out around 1 a.m. on the 70-thousand block of Elkhart Road. That's between Garver Lake and Redfield Street.

Edwardsburg Fire Chief Bruce Stack tells FOX28 he's not sure why or where the fire started. The home was fully engulfed in flames when emergency crews first arrived on the scene. It is being called a total loss.

Luckily, everyone made it out of the home okay.

"The people were at home at the start of the fire," Stack said. "They all got out safely, out the back. There was a dog that was trapped in there for a little while but it seems to be okay right now."

Firefighters will remain on the scene throughout early Friday morning to investigate. We'll bring you more details on this fire as they become available both on air and online at FOX28.com.
