Fire crews rush to tame Ireland Road house fire

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- East Ireland Road is open again.

It was shut down for an hour tonight while fire crews rushed to put out a basement fire. A quarter mile stretch of Ireland was closed from Hazel to Hickory so fire crews could put out that fire.

The fire began in the basement of the older home. Crews were able to contain it quickly, but they needed extra time to check the rest of the home for potential danger.
