Firefighters battled a flare-up Saturday morning of a fire that started Friday at an Elkhart County home.

According to our reporting partners at the Elkhart Truth, homeowner Roelf Kuitse called 911 after he opened the front door to his home northeast of Goshen and found smoke inside.

It happened around 6:15 p.m. Friday at a home in the Buttonbush subdivision off of CR 28.

No one was injured but it took five different township fire departments to put out the flames.

At one point flames shot 30 feet into the air.

Kuitse says firefighters told him they are unsure of exactly how the fire began but that one firefighter said it may have started near an electrical box in the basement.

The fire rekindled around 7 a.m. Saturday and was extinguished around 12:30 p.m.
