Knox-Center Township Firefighters Battle Apartment Fire


Firefighters responded to an apartment fire at 1515 S. Heaton Street in Knox Sunday evening.

Knox-Center Township Fire Chief Kenny Pfost said they were called to the scene at 5:05 p.m. and remained at the scene for 2.5 hours. The fire was contained to a single apartment, but an adjacent unit suffered water damage.

Pfost said the Indiana State Fire Marshal will determine the cause of the fire. Pfost does not believe the fire is suspicious in nature, but an investigation is required as the apartment building is a commercial structure.

The occupants of the apartment were present at the time the fire began. The Red Cross has stepped in to assist those affected by the fire.

No injuries were reported.
