Atwood Fire Department is responding to a possible house fire at 2077 W CR 400N.
According to Mike Harmon, Atwood Fire Department Fire Chief, fire fighters arrived on-scene to discover a small fire located on the porch of the building. Harmon explained that the resident of the home had been utilizing an electric heater with oil inside that melted through the appliance and caught a rug below on fire.
Because the rug was located on top of concrete floor, Harmon noted that only the rug was burned. Fire fighters assisted in clearing smoke from the residence.
According to Kosciusko County GIS, the home is owned by Randall B. Huntter.
