Investigators looking into cause of early morning Osceola house fire

OSCEOLA, Ind – Investigators are looking into the cause of an early morning fire that ripped through an Osceola home Tuesday.

Around 3 a.m., crews were called to the 200 block of East Adams Street, to a fully engulfed house fire.
Flames were showing through the roof, and could be seen for over two hours.
The Osceola Fire Chief, Ryan Deal, said since flames were through the roof, crews initially pulled out from inside the home, and fought flames from the ground and air, instead.
“ It’s hard to get to from the inside due to firefighters safety. They can’t get in there because the structure is collapsing on itself,” said Deal.”So they’re having to take different angle points from latters and things of that nature to get to it.”
Deal would not say the fire is suspicious, but did reiterate it is under investigation.
The Chief said investigators were expected to be at the scene all morning, and possibly into the afternoon.
The family who lives in the one-story home was out of town.
No one was hurt.
