Fire Destroys Home of Winamac Family

An early Monday morning fire destroyed the home of a Winamac family and now they’re in need of help.

Winamac Fire Chief Bill Weaver explained that the fire department was called to the Kevin Taylor home at 411 W. Main Street at about 5:50 a.m. ET. Taylor, his wife and two children made it out of the house safely before the fire department arrived at the scene.

The fire destroyed the entire residence and now the Taylor family is without a place to call home. The American Red Cross is helping the family with necessities until more permanent arrangements can be made. If you would like to help the family, call the American Red Cross at 1-800-733-2767.

Weaver said the fire department’s investigation showed that the fire was accidental and was caused by a candle.
