WAKARUSA — A fire that caused significant damage to a two-story home, but no injuries, was blamed on a gas furnace turned on for the first time this season. 

The Wakarusa Volunteer Fire Department along with Baugo and Harrison fire departments were dispatched about 9:50 p.m. Monday to 207 S. Elkhart St. On arrival, firefighters found heavy smoke coming from the house, according to a report Wednesday from the Wakarusa Volunteer Fire Department.
