Home goes up in flames 48 hours after woman moves out

ELKHART, Ind. - A woman's home went up in flames less than 48 hours after she moved out.

The fire broke out at 323 South 5th Street at 4:51 a.m. Sunday.

Fire investigators told ABC 57 News that the woman who lived in the home, Jennifer Henry, moved out less than two days before the fire.

Investigators believed the fire started in the living/dining room but are still unsure how it started.

$40,000 dollars worth of damage was caused to the home.

It took an hour to get the fire put out.

No one was in the home at the time and it's unclear if the woman still had any personal belongings inside.

The fire remains under investigation.
