On Tuesday night around 11:07 p.m., the Evansville Fire Department responded to a house fire in the 200 block of East Eichel Avenue.

Multiple callers were reporting the blaze to 911, with the original caller saying they thought an object in the yard was on fire.

Firefighters arrived within minutes, only to discover visible flames from the roof and attic space of the home.

According to EFD, the fire had spread to the attic and was difficult to extinguish due to multiple ceilings in the structure.

The fire was considered extinguished at 1:10 a.m. on Wednesday.

The rear of the home and its entire attic space sustained damage from the fire, but no injuries were reported as a result.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
