BRIMFIELD, Ind. (WOWO): A woman was hospitalized after a fire that took Noble County firefighters several hours to put out.

The Noble County Sheriff’s Department tells WOWO News first responders got multiple 911 calls at around 4pm Monday to a home in the 7000 block of North Main Street in Brimfield. By the time they arrived the house was fully engulfed in flames. A woman who had managed to escape the home was taken to a nearby hospital with burn injuries.

The single-digit temperatures caused to be a problem, as their equipment began to freeze while they were fighting the blaze, which is under investigation by the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office.

Agencies assisting at the scene included Orange Township Fire Department, Kendallville Fire Department, Albion Fire Department, Johnson Township Fire Department, Ligonier Fire Department, Noble County Sheriff’s Department, Albion Police Department, Rome City Police Department, Indiana Department of Natural Resources, and the Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office.
