Argentine Township home heavily damaged in fire

Posted: Updated:

(12/31/13) - The cold weather is making it tough for firefighters battling a house fire in Argentine Township.

It broke out shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday in the 8000 block of Lahring Road.

When crews got to the house, they were facing a fully engulfed fire.

The house is set back far from the road. The lack of hydrants in the area and the snowy weather have been making it tough for fire crews.

The flames spread quickly, leading to a call for help from several nearby fire departments. It looks like the house is totally gone.

We talked to a neighbor who says the Burkes family lives here and they own Muffler and Go in Fenton.

We called the business, and they say the family is fine - they're out of the house.
