FAIRPLAIN TOWNSHIP — A house sustained major water and smoke damage, but is not being considered a total loss after a Saturday morning fire.

The Sheridan Community Fire Department responded to a structure fire at 8:08 a.m. on Wendy Drive in Fairplain Township.

Amanda Linebaugh, who was renting the house, had stayed the night at a neighbors house and was not home during the time of the fire.

“There is a lot of smoke and water damage and the inside will have to be stripped out,” said Fire Chief Ed Lingeman.

He added he did not believe the house was a total loss.

It is currently undermined what caused the fire at the house, and no one was injured in the fire.

Linebaugh did not have renters insurance, but the house was insured by the owner, Lingeman said.

The Sheridan Community Fire Department was assisted by Stanton Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services.

The departments were on the scene for about an hour and a half and used about 1,200 gallons of water to extinguish the fire.
