Crews from two fire departments were forced into action early Wednesday morning after a blaze broke out at a home in Northern Spencer County.
Around 2 am yesterday firefighters from both the Carter Township Volunteer Fire Department and St. Henry Volunteer Fire Departments responded to a fully-involved structure fire located along the 6900 block of East Spencer County Road 2100 N north of Mariah Hill and south of I-64.
Carter Township Fire Chief Dan Reinke says by the time firemen arrived on the scene the home owned by Pat Mundy was a total loss.
Responders were on the scene for two hours.
Reinke says due to the extent of damage to the 1500 square foot home the cause of the fire has yet to be determined as well as estimating a dollar amount from losses. He says the home was insured.
Mundy was not home at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
Personnel from the Dale-based Carter Township unit responded to the fire with two trucks and eight firefighters. The St. Henry department provided two trucks and more than 10 firefighters to help battle the blaze.
