RICHLAND TOWNSHIP — A farmhouse on the 10000 block of Waldron Road was consumed by fire shortly after 7 p.m. Sunday night.
Richland Township Fire Chief Cal Callison said the house is a total loss. Callison there was nothing firefighters could have done to save the structure.
“The fire started in the wall some place,” Callison said. “The fire was totally involved when we got there. It was an older house and because of the old design the fire quickly spread up the studs of the walls, into the attic and eventually onto the roof.”
Callison said the cause of the fire is not known and is still under investigation. No one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
The Home Township Fire Department assisted on the scene.
