SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Family members and neighbors came together to help a house fire victim Sunday morning.

News 10 learned of a fire in rural Sullivan County around 9 a.m. Sunday.

When our photojournalist arrived on-scene he saw some smoke still coming from the home.

News 10 spoke with the twin brother of the home’s owner. He said the homeowners were on vacation and had been gone for three days. He said family members and neighbors worked to carry items from the house to the garage.

The brother said he was very thankful for the support from those people, as well as the firefighters who worked quickly to put out the fire.

The Turman Township Fire Department handled the call. According to Assistant Fire Chief Scott Rice, crews made an aggessive interior attack to put out the fire. The cause is now under investigation and the fire marshal has been notified.

Rice says Fairbanks Fire Department, Thunderbird Fire Protection Territory, Carlisle Ambulance Sevice and the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office assisted.
