      Space heater responsible for morning fire

      Fire departments were called out to a structure fire on County Road 510 in Ishpeming Township just before 5 a.m. Wednesday morning.

      Firefighters from Ishpeming and Negaunee were called to the home. It was tough going for the large trucks that were on scene. The home is in a remote location that made access difficult. According to officials, there were two people in the home at the time of the fire, which was caused by a space heater. The residents were able to put out the fire before crews arrived.

      There were no injuries caused by the fire and the house received minimal damage.
