MORRIS - A fish house on Pomme de Terre Lake caught fire Saturday afternoon while three young adults were inside.

Morris Fire Chief Doug Storck, who was out on the lake ice fishing with his family, was first to respond to the scene.


"My dad and I went to shore for fire extinguishers I had in my truck and returned to try to extinguish the fire, which had no effect," said Storck.
