FORESTER TWP. — A two-alarm blaze completely destroyed a vacant one-story house during the early morning hours of April 5.

Port Sanilac Fire Chief Brian Moran said the structure was “on the ground…the whole house fell in, collapsed” when firefighters arrived on the scene in the 5000 block of East Shabbona Road.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined but was not considered suspicious, said Moran.

He said the house was recently rented and the renter had moved some furniture into the dwelling but was not living there yet.

Firefighters were dispatched at 2:57 a.m. and remained the scene for about three hours.

Port Sanilac was assisted by the Deckerville Fire Department.
