On Wednesday, July 27th at approximately 1:41 A.M., the Butler Fire Department, with automatic mutual aid from Adrian Fire Department, responded to a report of a structure fire at 810 N. Water St. in Butler.

On arrival, heavy fire was found in two rooms of a 1 1/2 story, wood frame residential structure. The occupant of the residence, who was home at the time of the fire, had escaped the residence upon arrival.


The fire was controlled with heavy fire damage to the room of origin, with heavy smoke and heat damage to the remainder of the structure. Most of the contents were damaged.

Due to the construction of the residence, the fire required extensive overhaul to put out several pockets of fire. The last units left the scene at 5:03 A.M. A unit from Bates County EMS was on standby at the scene.


The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental in nature, with the investigation continuing. There were no injuries. 


Mid America Live News will update when we know more information about the families needs and clothes sizes.
