Two people are recovering from burns after a house fire in Elkhart.

Elkhart Fire crews were called around 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10, to the 700 Block of Christian Avenue and found heavy smoke coming from the front of the home and significant fire visible inside and at the back of the structure.

Firefighters were challenged by a downed power line at the back of the home until utility crews arrived to take care of it.

It took less than an hour to knock the flames out.

The two people who were hurt were taken to the hospital.

The American Red Cross is helping the family displaced by the fire.
