(Whitewater, IN)--Fire destroyed a home in northeastern Wayne County late Thursday night. It broke out at about 10:15 at a home on U.S. 227 just north of Whitewater. 227 was shut down as multiple agencies arrived. The home was fully involved by the time most of those departments got there. The family made it out of the home safely, but all of the contents were lost. 227 did not re-open until about 2 o’clock Friday morning.
