At approximately 9 pm last night Whiteland Fire was dispatched for a possible residence fire. First arriving crews found a working basement fire and quickly worked to extinguish the fire. Occupants of the home smelled something burning in the home and quickly exited the residence and called 911. Whiteland Fire Department would like to thank Greenwood, New Whiteland, Bargersville, and Franklin Fire for all their assistance last night. This was our third fire in the last week and we would like to remind everyone to continue to make sure you have working smoke alarms in your house. On all three fires this week, the alarms have sounded and assisted in alerting the occupants of the fire.
