WLFI-TV video of a fire Tuesday morning in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. Firefighters said they arrived to find fire through the roof of the home.
For hours, firefighters battled a house fire on North 9th Street. They were called to the scene around 2:30 a.m. and as of 5 a.m., firefighters were still trying to get the fire under control.
Tippecanoe Township Asst. Chief David Bisher said there was some difficulty getting the flames under control. There have been multiple additions to the home and multiple layers of roof that they had to fight through to get to the fire.
“As we would get air into those voids they would flare up and cause havoc. Conditions looked a lot worse on the outside than they were on the inside. It’s just that we couldn’t get to the attic where we needed to. Eventually that ceiling and that roof in the center of the building burnt and collapsed on us so pulled everybody out,” Bisher said.
