PLAINWELL, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A house fire in Allegan County forced the shutdown of a portion of M-89 Friday morning on August 1st.

M-89 was shut down between 6th and 4th street.

The original call on the house fire came in before 11pm at a home in the 500 block of M-89.

The homeowner managed to escape and called 9-1-1 from a neighbors house.

Crews from several departments were called to the scene and quickly knocked down flames in the kitchen area at the back of the house.

Around 3:30am crews were called back to the house after reports the fire had rekindled. There were unconfirmed reports the flames were shooting 30-feet in the air.

Crews and tankers were called in from several departments.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
