UPDATE: The Jasper Fire Department tells 18 News that the fire started while the resident was working on the gas tank of a vehicle and a spark ignited the tank.
Both the garage and the house were burned down, but the resident did have insurance.
A viewer sent 18 News video of a house fire around 5 p.m. in the Steuben County Town of Jasper, on Monday night.
John Werner, who is a neighbor, said the garage and house burned down. There have been no reports of any injuries.
According to Werner, “The fire truck became engulfed in smoke from the high winds. I don’t know if they were able to get any water on it from that engine. Other engines finally arrived to assist.”
