Elkhart, Ind. Friday was a hot day for firefighters battling a house fire north of Elkhart.
Our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth captured these images from the fire and say four other neighboring fire departments joined Cleveland Township battling the blaze.
Neighbors spotted the fire around 10:30 Friday morning at a home on Brooklyn Avenue near the Indiana-Michigan border.
At one point the entire back of the home was engulfed and it took firefighters about 45 minutes to get the blaze under control.
They were told a couple lived at the home but a search came up empty. Fighting fires is always difficult but this shot clearly shows the toll it can take on the men in red on steamy days like this.
