TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) – Emergency crews in Tippecanoe County responded to an overnight fire in a wooded area on Friday.

Around 3 a.m., the Sheffield Fire Department was called to the 10000 block of County Road East 350 South. That’s just east of Dayton.

Investigators said the homeowner had been burning logs the day before when the wind got the embers going again.

Firefighters were greeted with heavy smoke when they arrived, but they were able to contain the flames to a small wooded area.

Firefighters want to remind homeowners about burning items in dry condition.
