DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI) — Emergency crews in Delphi responded to a fire in the 300 block of North Washington Street around 5 a.m. Thursday.
Officials confirmed it was a residence and everyone made it out of the building safe.
Authorities said smoke detectors were not located inside the house. A resident inside the home was made aware of the fire by the smell of smoke.
Delphi Fire Chief Darrell Sterrett said the fire appears to have started in the home’s attic and electrical issues may have been a factor. The cause has not yet been determined.
At least 70-80 percent of the home was destroyed, officials said.
North Washington Street – from Madison to Monroe streets – closed for about three hours as crews worked to douse the flames.
Red Cross was on scene providing the residents of the home with assistance.
Fire crews from Delphi, Camden and Flora assisted.
