Home Destroyed By Flames

Flames early Mon­day morn­ing destroyed a home and a garage in But­ler. For­tu­nately, fire­fight­ers were able to save the house next door. The first call came in just before 3am Mon­day for the fire at 324 West Main Street in But­ler. Fire­fight­ers from But­ler, Edger­ton, Angola, Auburn, Water­loo, Spencerville, and Con­cord Town­ship all responded. A garage next to the house was a work­shop, where oxy­gen, acety­lene and propane tanks were located. The Bryan Times reports those tanks exploded like fire­works for about a half an hour. The cause of the fire remains unde­ter­mined, and is being inves­ti­gated by the Indi­ana Fire Marshal’s office. No one was home when the fire started and no injuries were reported.
