Smoke detectors alert family to house fire

TERRE HAUTE — Honey Creek firefighters responded to a house fire in the Southwood Subdivision late Monday.

No one was injured and the two occupants and their pets were outside the structure when firefighters arrived. Smoke detectors alerted the family to the fire.

Firefighters were dispatched to the scene in the 1000 block of Elizabeth Lane at 11:48 p.m., and returned to station at 2:12 a.m.

Smoke was showing from the eaves when firefighters arrived. They were able to contain the blaze to two rooms in the attic, and saved the structure.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but appears to be electrical, a firefighter stated.

Providing mutual aid at the scene were firefighters from the Sugar Creek and Riley departments.
