Fire destroys Hazleton Home


A Buchanan County man is without a home after a fire early Wednesday morning.

It started in the garage just after 5:00 a.m. in Hazleton. Firecrews were called to the 100 block of 3rd Street South.

When rescuers arrived on scene, the garage was already engulfed, and flames were coming out of the windows of the house. Crews from Hazleton, Oelwein & Independence fought to keep the fire spreading from nearby homes.

The man who lived here was inside sleeping when the fire started, but a neighbor woke him up and he got out safely.

The home is gutted, and is a complete loss. No word on how the fire started inside the garage.
