LAWTON, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was taken to a hospital after a fire broke out in a house about 19 miles southwest of Kalamazoo Tuesday night. 

Authorities say firefighters from the Lawton Fire Department were called to a fire in the 29000 block of  Jewells Drive just after 10:30 p.m. 

It’s unclear how many people were in the house or what caused the fire, but Van Buren County dispatchers told 24 Hour News 8 that everyone made it out of the burning home. 

Dispatchers initially told 24 Hour News 8 a child was burned in the fire, but later stated a man was the only person injured at the scene.

This incident remains under investigation by the Lawton Fire Department.
