Fire Destroys Wellness Center

(Porter County, IN) - An area business was destroyed by fire yesterday. The Inspiration Wood Wellness Center just west of the La Porte County line near Otis went up in flames.


So far, no indications have been given on what caused the blaze fought by more than a half dozen fire departments.  Firefighters were called when an aircraft pilot saw smoke and flames coming from the building late in the morning. 


According to the company’s website, the wellness center was started about 15 years ago. It was offering what was described as a spiritual setting, along with a variety of wellness programs and products like essential oils.


Coaching sessions were to begin next year, according to the website.
