Crews respond to two early morning fires in Evansville


EVANSVILLE, Ind (WEHT) – Evansville firefighters responded to two fires Friday morning.

Crews battled a house fire in the 1600 block of Beckman Avenue, just off of Covert Avenue. That call came in just after 4 a.m. Crews had the fire out within 30 minutes.

Firefighters said fire was visible from the front, which included the front porch and two interior rooms of the home. Officials say the fire appeared to start in the enclosed porch and spread to the two adjacent front rooms.

No one was inside the home when firefighters arrived. No injuries were reported. We’re told the home is possibly vacant but did have active utilities. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Around the same time, fire crews were also sent to the intersection of Redbank and Pearl Drive on the city’s west side for a report of a vehicle on fire. Officials say nobody was inside the vehicle.
