Crews respond to house fire in Evansville

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Crews responded to a house fire near Oak Hill and Saint George Road around 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

The fire caused part of Oak Hill to be shut down until it was put out. Crews tell us they put the fire out in about 30 minutes.

We are told they think the fire started in the home’s garage.

They say the home is more than likely a total loss.

Neighbors alerted the homeowner’s about the fire, and they were able to get out safely before firefighters arrived.

“Upon arrival, we had heavy fire coming out of the garage area,” said Lt. Michael Smith with the McCutchanville Fire Department. “We made an attack on it. Got the garage knocked down. At that point, we went in through the front door. Made a primary search, determined there was no residence inside and there was no extension. At that point, we overhauled the garage.”

No injuries were reported.
