Early Morning Fire Causes Evacuation

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)- A fire broke out early Wednesday morning on the 300 block of Francis Avenue in Lansing. That is near U.S. 127 between Saginaw Street and Michigan Avenue.

The fire started shortly after 4 A.M. on Wednesday morning. Francis Avenue has been blocked off between Vine and Fernwood.

One home was fully engulfed in flames while surrounding homes did suffer some damage.

Lansing police officials tell us that there was live wire on the ground and because of safety purposes people in the area have been evacuated. The Board of Water and Light was on scene to help asses the situation.

Although we don't know yet how the fire started, we do know that no one was injured. Lansing fire officials believe that the home was being renovated.
