Fire crews in Cass County were called to a home where a fire had sparked after a vehicle crashed into the structure.
The collision happened around 7:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 17, in the area of Huntley Street and Barron Lake Road.
Sheriff’s investigators say a 33-year-old Niles man was traveling on Barron Lake Road and struck the back of a vehicle driven by a Dowagiac resident. The Niles man ran off the road, hit a mailbox and the side of the house. The other vehicle struck a gas line, causing the house and the vehicle to catch fire.
The two drivers were treated for injuries at the hospital. Nobody inside the house was hurt.
