A one story farm­house west of Metz was destroyed by flames Wednes­day morn­ing. Fire­fight­ers from nine depart­ments were called out at about 1:40am Wednes­day.

The house was fully involved when fire­fight­ers arrived.

Hamil­ton fire­fight­ers got mutual aide from Metz, Angola, Flo­rence Town­ship, Ash­ley, Fre­mont, Hud­son, Pleas­ant Lake and But­ler crews. Edger­ton fire­fight­ers stood by at the But­ler sta­tion. Eight tankers were used to bat­tle the fire which was brought under con­trol in about an hour. No injuries were reported and no one was home at the time the flames broke out.

Inves­ti­ga­tors say it appears the fire started in the mid­dle of the struc­ture. So far, no esti­mate has been made on the loss.
