OTTERBEIN, Ind. (WLFI) — Otterbein fire crews with the assistance of Wabash Township fire crews battled an apartment fire Thursday.
The call to an apartment on Laird Street came in just after noon. The fire was contained to only one of the two units in the building. The back unit was called a total loss. There were people home at the time of the fire and all of the residents made it out safely suffering mild smoke inhalation. They are staying with family.
At this time Otterbein fire doesn't have a cause. State inspectors will be in town on Friday to help determine what may have caused the fire.
