Boone Grove Fire Department Fire Chief Bill Casbon says a turkey fryer is believed to have been the cause of a house fire Sunday afternoon. Reports say the fryer ignited while in a garage, and spread to the house when the oil sloshed out as the homeowner was trying to get it outside. The house became fully engulfed. There were no reports of injuries.
