People Flee Safely from Burning Home

(Center Township, IN) - A house between La Porte and Michigan City was heavily damaged by fire Friday morning.  It happened on 300 North just off Johnson Road.  Firefighters from multiple departments responded to the incident around 7 a.m.


A male and female who lived at the home made it out safely.  Stephen Hapke, who lives across the street, said he was sleeping when his neighbors came knocking on his front door to let them know what was happening.  Hapke said there was heavy smoke billowing from both sides of the residence but he didn’t see an open flames.


So far, the extent of the damage and cause of the fire are not known.
