House remnants burn in binOctober 16, 2019
From Local Sources
DUBOIS — Units of the Dubois Volunteer Fire Department responded to the report of a trash bin fire north of Dubois on Monday evening.
The department was paged at 6:16 p.m. to the Clark Weigel property at 6556 State Road 545.
Fire Chief Steve Kalb said construction crews were tearing down an old house and putting the remnants in a 40-cubic-yard dumpster. Earlier in the day, Kalb said, workers used a cutting torch. It was thought a hot ember remained in the debris.
Two hours after crews left the job site, the chief said, the fire started in the bin.
Firefighters emptied the bin and watered down the contents.
Two trucks and 10 firefighters were on the scene for an hour.
