A house is a total loss after a fire on Saturday.
Around 11am, Brooksburg/Miller Township Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire at Hi Acres, approx. 1 miles east of Brooksburg on State Rd. 56.
When crews arrived on scene, they found a fully involved house on fire. The strong winds were blowing the fire toward a neighboring house. Firefighters concentrated on protecting any exposures and then extinguishing the initial structure.
Firefighters used water from the Ohio river to fill tankers along with hauling water from a hydrant in Brooksburg.
Ryker’s Ridge Fire Dept also responded. The house was totally destroyed. No one was injured.
