Tecumseh house fire kills three cats

WIBW – March 31, 2017


Three cats were killed in a Thursday evening house fire in Tecumseh, but fire crews managed to save two others.

Shawnee Heights Fire District Battalion Chief Brian Aeschliman says crews were called to the 2400 block of SE Stubb Road before 5 p.m.

When crews arrived they found flames coming from one of the bedrooms and significant smoke coming out of windows.

Shawnee Heights Fire District and crews from the 190th Air Refueling Wing fought the fire.

Chief Aeschliman says homeowners were not inside the home when the fire broke out and there were no additional reported injuries. He says they were able to contain the fire much quicker due to recent water system updates.

“They have been updating some of the water systems in this area and we have a nice brand new fire hydrant directly across the street, which is kind of unusual for some of our rural addresses,” said Chief Aeschliman.

The cause of the fire remains unknown.
