ALLEN COUNTY, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — One person is dead after an overnight house fire south of Fort Wayne.
The Poe Fire Chief tells Fort Wayne’s NBC that a person driving by the intersection of Ferguson Rd and Muldoon Rd. around 12:30 p.m. Friday spotted the flames.
That Good Samaritan was met with a woman, who said her husband was still inside.
Hours later, firefighters called in an excavator to dig through the rubble.
The fire chief says they found a body in the crawl space.
The house is back a good distance from the road and crews blocked off traffic near the area.
