In Union Township, Union Volunteer Fire Chief Tim Beach says four families were displaced by an apartment fire overnight at the northeast corner of US 30 and County Road 600 West. Multiple agencies were dispatched at 1:44 am and Beach says the first arriving fire trucks saw flames through the roof on the east end of the building, and three of the five apartments were completely damaged. The other two units have smoke and water damage, Beach said. Chief Beach says only two units were occupied, and they were among the three destroyed. He also says people living in an apartment building behind the one that caught fire are also out of their homes because NIPSCO had to shut off power to the one feed that runs both buildings. Beach says a little boy was trying to wake up his mother, telling her he smelled smoke, and at the same time a neighbor came by knocking on the door, telling them the apartment's on fire and they need to get out. There were no reports of injuries. The cause is still under investigation. Crews were on scene until about 6-o'clock this morning. Union Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by Valparaiso, Boone Grove, South Haven, Lakes of Four Seasons fire crews and Porter County Sheriffs Department.
