Putnam County home catches fire

Posted by wlpo on April 28, 2015

The State Fire Marshall has been called to investigate what started a late morning house fire south of Standard.

The initial 9-1-1 call came in before 11 o’clock Tuesday morning about a house fully engulfed on North 955th Road. A mutual aid call was put out immediately with firefighters from Standard, Cedar Point, Granville and McNabb on the scene. Heavy smoke coming from the two-story home could be seen miles away.

The American Red Cross has also been contacted to help those displaced by the fire. Nobody was hurt.
