BAUGO TOWNSHIP – An Elkhart County family is trying to come to grips with the loss of their home to fire early Sunday morning.
Around 3:30 a.m., Baugo Township firefighters were called to the 56700 block of Boss Blvd, just north of Old US 33. Three generations lived in the home – Richard Moore, his wife, their son and their son’s 10-year-old daughter.
They smelled smoke and were able to get out safely before the fire department arrived.
"I went to bed, then my wife woke me up and said there was smoke coming in the bathroom," said Moore. "She went out to the backdoor to see if she could see where the smoke was coming from and saw that the house was on fire, and ran and got everybody out of the house and then called the fire department."
