Fire Destroys House in Swisher


By Max Walker

SWISHER, Iowa - Firefighters from departments in three counties responded to a house fire in Johnson County just after midnight on Wednesday.

Eugene Beard, Deputy Chief of the Swisher Fire Department, said the call came in at 12:17 a.m. for a structure fire in the 1700 block of Derby Avenue Northwest. He said the fire was already burning because a neighbor called it in, and not someone living at the house.

Beard described the house as a total loss, but said the State Fire Marshall would not investigate the cause because it was not considered suspicious. He said there were no injuries as a result of the fire.

In addition to Swisher, Beard said firefighters from Amana, Solon, Norway, Fairfax, Ely, Tiffin and North Liberty responded.
