TIPTON COUNTY, Ind. — Crews in Tipton County battled a large fire Tuesday morning.

According to the Tipton County Sheriff’s Office, crews responded to a house fire in Goldsmith. A photo posted by the sheriff’s department showed intense flames shooting from the structure.

County Road 725 West was closed at State Road 28 and Division Road as emergency personnel work to get the situation under control early Tuesday.

Dispatchers said the home is likely a total loss. Investigators believe the family that lives there is out of town on vacation. Travel nearby is still limited because of the amount of crews in the area.
