6574 North State Road 327 • Orland, IN

By: Sheila McCrea

Rags that were used for staining a floor may have been the cause of a Sunday morning structure fire near Orland.

The Orland Fire Department was called Sunday morning just after 7 a.m. for a reported structure fire to 6574 North State Road 327. Orland Fire Chief Kim Norton said that first units found heavy smoke conditions and requested the Fremont Fire Department to assist.

Reports indicate that the resident at the mobile home advised firefighters that a neighbor had seen the smoke and woke her up by beating on the side of the home.

Chief Norton said that it appeared that rags used the night before to stain flooring were placed in a residential dumpster, which may have spontaneously heated up causing the fire. An estimate of damage has not been released.

One firefighter was treated at the scene for a medical issue. No one else was injured.

Also assisting at the scene were the Orland Police Department, Steuben County Communications, and Steuben County EMS.
