(ANGOLA) - There was a lot of smoke on the northeast side of Angola early Tuesday night when a house fire broke out at 802 Mohawk. Angola firefighters were called at 6:37pm. Black smoke could be seen for several blocks as police and firefighters rushed to the scene. Fire Chief Mike Meek said they were able to knock the fire down quickly and it was called under control at 6:55pm. Meek says there was heavy fire and smoke damage inside. The structure of the home appeared to have little damage. A man, woman and two children were in the home when the fire broke out. They all managed to get to safety. No injuries were reported. Meek said the cause of the fire was under investigation but it is not considered suspicious. The property is owned by Charif Ahmed and was being rented by Wahhaj Amboon. Hudson firefighters were initially called in to standby by at the Angola station but they were eventually called to the scene. After putting the fire out, firefighters spent over two hours overhauling the damage. They cleared the scene at about 9:30pm. The American Red Cross was called in to provide assistance to the burned out family. Among the other agencies helping were the Angola Water Department, NIPSCO, Steuben County E.M.S., the Steuben County Sheriffs Department, Angola Police, the Indiana State Police, Steuben County Emergency Management along with dispatchers from Steuben County Communications and the Angola Police Department.

Angola firefighters sent to a home at 802 Mohawk on Tuesday evening.
