UPDATE: Crews respond to house fire near Simonton Lake

Posted:

A house in the Simonton Lake area was severely damaged after a fire this morning in Elkhart.

When crews arrived on the scene shortly after 10:00am, the house already had flames shooting out of the roof, which eventually collapsed. While crews were able to control the blaze after an hour of work, the wooden cabin on the 25500 block of Lake Drive is nearly a total loss.

The owner was not home at the time of the blaze and no people were injured. However there were pets inside and they have not been accounted for at this time. The intense heat of the fire has prevented crews from investigating or determining a cause.

At noon, CR 109 was still closed near the scene. For Elkhart County fire crews, this was their second fully-involved house fire in 12 hours.
