Abandoned home is fully engulfed after fire in Elkhart

Osolo Township Fire, Cleveland Township Fire, and Elkhart fire departments and emergency services responded to a large fire Tuesday evening.

The abandoned two-story home was fully engulfed in flames leading to a total loss.

Fire Chief Joe Johnston with Osolo Township Fire says the cause of the fire is still to be determined since it has been abandoned for several years.

He says it’s difficult to say what may have caused it in cases like this.
