Ellettsville, IN, June 28, 2024 — A residential structure fire on Hartstrait Road drew multiple fire departments and emergency services late Friday night. The Ellettsville Fire Department and Monroe Fire Protection District were dispatched at approximately 9:56 p.m. to tackle the blaze.

Upon arrival, crews were met with heavy fire involvement. Challenging conditions around the residence hindered their efforts to gain quick access to the fire. Despite the obstacles, firefighters worked diligently to contain the blaze.

Firefighters struggled to keep a steady supply of water on hand while fighting the fire but were resupplied by tankers.

Assistance was provided by the Eastern Greene Fire Territory, the City of Bloomington Fire Department, and an IU Health Lifeline ambulance. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Department closed Hartstrait Road to ensure the safety of the responding units and the public.

One injury was reported, but the condition of the injured individual has not been disclosed. No further details on the cause of the fire or the extent of the damage have been released.
