Muskegon home consumed by fire

Muskegon County

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — The Muskegon Fire Department fought a large house fire for hours Sunday.

Officials say they responded to a home on Jiroch Street in downtown Muskegon since around 4:30 a.m.

Firefighters on scene say there are two known men who live in the home and one has been accounted for.

Officials say the house has taken a lot of damage and the second floor of the home has collapsed. Firefighters tell News 8 they are waiting on a piece of heavy equipment to begin tearing down walls so they can continue to look and see if anyone was trapped in the fire.

There are no known injuries at this time and there is no indication of what may have caused the fire, firefighters say.
