Fire damages vacant building

Huntington Fire Department was dispatched to a structure fire at the vacant building formerly occupied by H.K. Porter at 1849 Sabine Street the night of Thursday, April 28.

The industrial site was already scheduled for cleanup this month.

On arrival fire crews found heavy smoke and flames coming through the roof and openings from three sides of the building. Fire crews had the fire under control in less than two hours and remained on scene until early afternoon Friday, April 29, extinguishing hot spots.

The cause of the fire is unknown and there is an ongoing investigation with Indiana State Fire Marshal Office.

Huntington Fire Department was assisted by Bippus Fire, Roanoke Fire, Huntington Township Fire, Parkview Huntington EMS, Huntington County Emergency Management, Huntington City Police Department, and Huntington County D.A.T.

No injuries were reported.
