Firefighters fight flames in Elkhart for hours

ELKHART, Ind. -- It took four fire departments to put a house fire out in Elkhart Sunday night.  

Firefighters say when they arrived flames were about ten feet tall. No one was injured. 

The homeowner made it out safely. Neighbors say he went back in a couple times to save his cats. 

Fire officials said the building was definitely a total loss and wouldn't let anybody go inside because the structure has been compromised.

Investigators are still trying to find out what caused the fire.
