A rural Marion home was heavily damaged by fire Sunday, but the cause of the fire is still not known.
Firefighters from Center Township, Mill Township and Washington Township were called to the battle the flames, which were discovered in an upstairs bedroom at 0651 South and 500 East just before 6 o’clock Sunday evening.
It took firefighters about a half hour to put out the blaze, which caused an estimated 45-thousand dollars damage to the home and its contents. The five occupants of the home escaped the fire unharmed.
Center Township Fire Chief Aaron Smith says the cause of that fire remains under investigation.
