Crews responded to the structure fire on Central Avenue shortly before 4:30 am and cleared the scene by 9 am. Whiting Fire Chief Gus Danielides told the Region News Team there were no injuries, and the homeowner wasn't home when the fire broke out. Whiting crews were assisted by an engine from Hammond. Chief Danielides says the two-story wood-frame home on sustained severe fire damage on both levels. Cause and point of origin of the fire are not yet known.
