LAGRANGE COUNTY — Two people suffered burns in a residential fire just east of the Elkhart/LaGrange county line Thursday evening.

LaGrange County emergency dispatchers said firefighters responded to 1225 North/1200 West at 6:21 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31 for a report of a house fire.

The caller told dispatchers two people had suffered minor burns.

WSBT reports that Shipshewana and Middlebury firefighters arrived at the scene to find flames shooting out of the roof a building attached to a two-story home.

The fire was caused by a propane leak from an outdoor cooking burner that had been brought inside, WSBT reports.

The burn victims were taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Fort Wayne and Parkview LaGrange Hosptal.

It is also a panacea as pump prices fall, giving individuals more disposable income and lowering costs for many businesses. Partly because of the shale oil boom in the U.S., the world is awash in oil but demand from major economies is weak so prices are falling. The latest slide was triggered by OPEC’s decision Thursday to leave its production target at 30 million barrels a day.
