Fire crews spent Friday afternoon battling a house fire in Lincoln County.
The home is located on County Road C in the Township of Schley.
Authorities say no one was in the two-story house at the time of the fire. More than 20 firefighters from multiple departments responded.
"The garage was fully engulfed and it was spreading into the residence above the garage and into the house at that time, with the north wind pushing it directly into the house," said Don Gennrich, Town of Russell assistant fire chief.
