Insurance blamed for house fire mess

An Elkhart woman suspects that the reason her insurance company has not cleared the debris from her burned house on West Garfield Avenue two months after it was demolished is that the property is in an African-American neighborhood. 

ELKHART — An Elkhart woman whose house burned in June claims her insurance company is being slow to compensate her and clean up the property because the house was in a black neighborhood.

“I feel like, if they would have torn a house down in a white neighborhood, they would have cleaned it up that day,” Michele Evans said.
