PORTLAND ARCH, Ind. (WLFI) -- Multiple fire agencies are at the scene of a home explosion in rural Fountain County and will be there for the majority of the night.
The call came in around 4 p.m., for a home in Portland Arch, about five miles southwest of Attica.
The owners told us they were in the home when it happened. They were able to get out unhurt, but two cats and eight dogs inside are presumed dead.
The property also had a garage with two cars totaled inside.
It's unclear at this point what caused the explosion.
Fire crews called Tipmont REMC to turn off power to the area while they battle the fire, but Tipmont tells us they do not have any gas lines there.
