One person was injured in a Saturday evening fire in Washington. The minor fire did little damage, but sent one person to an Indianapolis hospital with burns. According to a release from the Washington Fire Department, city firefighters were called to a fire at 601 W. Walnut St. An officer arriving at the scene found all the residents of the home, including children, were out of the house. When firefighters arrived, smoke was found from the attic coming from the kitchen stove. The fire was quickly extinguished and did not create any structural damage, according to Chief Dave Rhoads. One person, Kelly D. Quiggins, had burns on his arms and was taken to Daviess Community Hospital. He was later transferred to Eskenazi Hospital in Indianapolis. A message was left with Eskenazi officials, but a DCH representative said Quiggins was in serious condition. The house is owned by Ernest and Carolyn Colbert of Washington. City firefighters were called to another possible fire at 606 Troy Road on Sunday. The small electrical fire was out before firefighters arrived and the home was vented for smoke.
