A home at 9905 Hwy. 227 S. was destroyed by fire early Tuesday morning.

Owen County Fire Chief Larry Karsner said the station received a call around 1:30 a.m.

“Five departments were there,” Karsner said. “It was pretty much fully involved by the time we got there in the left, front center of the house.”

Fire crews worked until around 5:30 a.m. putting out the flames at the home of Rodney Osbourne.

Karsner said no one was injured in connection with the fire.

“The Red Cross was called and they were there to help the family out,” Karsner said.

As of Tuesday afternoon, the cause of the fire was still under investigation by officials.
