Large fire consumes part of Adams County home


Firefighters responded to a large house fire Wednesday night in Adams County.

Crews arrived at 3206 Rutledge Place at 6:33 p.m.

“Crews saw the front of the house fully involved when they got there,” Quincy Fire Assistant Chief Tom Bentley said.

Four engines responded to the scene.

The Tri-Township Fire District was called for mutual aid but was turned away.

“We [Quincy Fire Department] had the first three trucks on scene, so I knew I would have plenty of help there then," Bentley said. "I still had engine 5 on the way."

There were no injuries.

Investigators were still on scene as of 9:23 p.m.

“They will be on scene investigating for some time. I’m not sure on just how long,” Bentley said.
