An Owen County family is being assisted by the Red Cross after a Friday fire claimed their home.
The Owen County Volunteer Fire Department received the call just after 8 p.m. Friday.
All county departments responded to the fire at the 4000 block of Hwy. 22, at the corner of Gratz Road and Cecil Lane.
Owen County Volunteer Fire Department Public Information Officer Jude Canchola said the house was a total loss and the cause of the fire was electrical.
“The Red Cross was called in and they are currently putting the family up in a motel for housing,” Canchola said.
