The Scoop


Verbatim: House fire, 434 W Dewald

Just after 1230AM The Fort Wayne FD was dispatched to 434 W. Dewald. Neighbors reported smoke coming from the roof of this home.

On arrival crews were advised no one was inside and they advanced a hose line to the attic where a long smoldering fire was found and extinguished.

The fire had caused minor damage to the attic and filled it with smoke. The fire was under control in 14 minutes, but crews remained on scene longer removing smoldering insulation from the attic.

The FWFD was assisted by the FWPD, NIPSCO and Neighborhood Code Enforcement. The Red Cross was contacted to assist the residents.
