FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - The Allen County coroner was called to the scene of an afternoon fire in the 4300 block of Felger Road on Tuesday. That’s on the northern side of Arcola.

Fire officials reported an apparent fatality in that incident, which was called in about 3:30 p.m. They believe one person died in the single-family home, which is located in a rural area. Several other people inside the home were able to escape.

Fire departments from surrounding areas responded and crews had to shuttle water to the location because of the lack of hydrants. Officials said they would be on the scene into the early evening securing the scene.
