Angola firefighters are being credited with saving a 3-year-old boy from a one-story burning house early Thursday morning.

Emergency crews were called to 4275 County Road West 100 North, about four miles west of Angola in rural Steuben County. The 12:30 a.m. call was a reported fire with a young boy trapped inside.

Angola Fire Department Public Information Officer TR Hagerty said several law enforcement officers were first to arrive on the scene, and three of them were hurt trying to rescue the boy.

Reports indicate that the heat and smoke from the fire made it impossible for the officers to locate the youngster.

Hagerty said when firefighters arrived there was heavy fire throughout the home.

The boy was then taken to Cameron Hospital in Angola before being transferred to a Fort Wayne hospital. Hagerty did not have details on the condition of the boy.

Hagerty said of the injurred officers, an Indiana State Troopers was treated at Cameron Hospital for smoke inhalation and was later released. An Angola Police Officer was also treated and released from Cameron for smoke inhalation and laceration to his hand. A Steuben County Sheriff's Deputy was initially taken to Cameron, but was then transferred to a Fort Wayne hospital for smoke inhalation. His condition is not known.

There was at least two other person inside the house when the fire started. Hagerty said those individuals were not injured.

Hagerty said the fire to the single-story home was extinguished rather quickly. The residence is owned by Ray Curtland, and was occupied by Ryan Kauffman.

The fire is under investigation by the Indiana State Police, the Angola Fire Department and the State Fire Marshal’s Office.

Other agencies assisting at the scene were the Fremont Fire Department, Orland Fire Department, Steuben Township Fire Department, Steuben County EMS, Dekalb County EMS, Steuben County Sheriff’s Office, Angola City Police, Indiana State Police, Fremont Police, Indiana State Fire Marshal’s Office, and Steuben County REMC. The Ashley-Hudson Fire Department Stood by at the Angola Fire Station.
