House Total Loss After Catching Fire

Posted: Updated:

OKEMOS, Mich. (WLNS) - Crews worked to put out a house fire in Okemos on Christmas Eve.

It started around 5:30p.m. in the 200 block of North Newman Road.

The whole house in engulfed in flames. Luckily, neighbors say that no one was home.

"One of my son's called, while the other two, my other son and husband started looking in the windows and there were no cars in the garage," said Sherri Henry, who lives across the street.

The closest fire hydrant was 3 miles away, so multiple agencies had to shuttle water back and forth, using roughly 200,000 gallons to put it out.

Seven tankers all helped put out the flames, including Leroy, Williamston, Ingham townhips, Dansville and Stockbridge Fire Departments.

As of now, it seems the house is a total loss.

There's still no word on what may have caused the fire.
