Crews battle house fire in Floyds Knobs

Fire crews were dispatched to a home in the 5000 block of Bent Creek Dr. just before 7 p.m. Thursday.

FLOYDS KNOBS, Ind. — Crews are on the scene of a house fire in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. 

According to Sgt. Ryan Houchen with the Lafayette Twp. Fire Protection District, fire crews were dispatched to a home in the 5000 block of Bent Creek Dr. just before 7 p.m. Thursday. The fire had already vented through the roof of the house when crews arrived, Sgt. Houchen said.

Limited hydrants in the area and a long driveway made it difficult to supply water to the scene. Crews laid a large diameter supply line from the road to the scene, according to Sgt. Houchen. While they were able to obtain water supply, it was difficult to maintain. 

Sgt. Houchen said a second alarm was initiated for tankers and manpower. There are 33 personnel at the scene.

It is not clear how the fire started or if anyone was injured.
