Farmhouse near Standard destroyed in fire

Posted by wlpo on April 29, 2015

Firefighters from across Putnam County and elsewhere fought a house fire for several hours on Tuesday.

The initial 9-1-1 call about a house fully engulfed south of Standard came in Tuesday morning before 11. Within an hour, the two-story farmhouse was crumbling due to the flames. Firefighters actually had to come back to the house around 5 o’clock when the fire rekindled.

The state fire marshal’s office has been contacted to investigate the cause of the fire. Nobody was injured.
