Race St. house fire

A house fire at 403 S. Race St. heavily damaged the rental property, which is reportedly owned by Eugene White. Firefighters from Van Wert, Middle Point and Convoy fire departments were on the scene to fight the blaze, starting shortly after a 9-1-1 call was received at 6:48 p.m. Thursday. Here, a fire hose blasts water and debris through a second-story window of the dwelling. (Dave Mosier/Van Wert independent)
