Firefighters called to Birdseye rental homeJanuary 29, 2020
From Local Sources
BIRDSEYE — Members of the Birdseye Volunteer Fire Department responded Tuesday night to the report of a structure fire on the east side of town.
The 10:55 p.m. callout was to 131 E. State Road 64, a rental home owned by the Town of Birdseye just east of the town park.
Fire Chief David Smith said the two occupants safely exited after a pile of papers near a basement wood stove ignited under some stairs.
The first-arriving member of the department was a firefighter who lived close by and who came with a fire extinguisher that was used for an initial knockdown.
The fire department exhausted smoke from the basement and main floor but the renters spent the rest of the night with family as a precaution, according to Smith.
Two trucks and 18 firefighters were on the scene for an hour.
The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office and Memorial Hospital Emergency Medical Services assisted.
