Flames shoot through roof of Boonville home

Investigators working to determine cause of Boonville fire

WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) - Crews responded to a fire in Boonville.

It happened Monday morning at a home in the 400 block of E. Poplar St.

Flames were shooting out of the roof of the two-story house when 14 News reporter Jim Stratman arrived on scene.

Boonville fire officials say they tried to fight the fire from back to front, but couldn’t conduct a search of the house due to the intensity of the fire and a partial roof collapse.

Thankfully, nobody was inside the home when the fire started.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
