4200 Block of West Vernal Pike, Ellettsville Fire Dept., Blooomington Hospital Ambulance Service, and Monroe Co. Sheriff Dept. responded to the scene. One human fatality found inside the residence. Reader Kyle Landgrebe submitted the photo.
A man’s body was found on the floor of a bedroom of a home on West Vernal Pike Sunday night by Ellettsville firefighters who extinguished a blaze at the one-story frame residence.

Ellettsville fire chief Jim Davis said a fire at 4230 W. Vernal Pike was reported at 8:32 p.m. Sunday, and the first fire units arrived within three minutes to find flames shooting through the bedroom windows.

The fire was knocked down in less than 10-15 minutes, according to Davis, who said the man was found dead on the floor of the bedroom during a search of the home. Identification of the man was being handled by the Monroe County Coroner’s Office, according to Davis.

Davis said the cause of the blaze is still under investigation, but he said the fire appeared to start in the vicinity of the bed in the room where the man was found. The Indiana Fire Marshal’s office was notified. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office also had units at the scene, Davis said.
