FIRE DESTROYS HOME NEAR LAKENGREN

(Preble County, OH)--A Gasper Township firefighter was slightly injured while battling a fire that destroyed a Preble County home yesterday.  It broke out in the 4000 block of Silver Hart Road, which is just west of Lakengren.  The firefighter was injured while trying to jump back from a collapsing wall.  Two people were home when the fire broke out and made it out safely.  Fuel and ammunition in the basement made fighting the fire more difficult.  So did this..."We've got a lack of manpower.  Water resource is a big issue out here, so we had to do a defensive attack," said Gasper Township Fire Chief Larry Taylor.  The cause remains under investigation.
