POWELL TOWNSHIP — A house in Powell Township is considered to be a total loss after a fire early Friday morning.

The Powell Township Fire Department was dispatched to a two–story house off of Brown Deer Road just before 5 a.m. When fire crews arrived, the residence was fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters initially thought that two people may have been inside the residence, but they were later located elsewhere on the property. The cause of the fire is still undetermined at this time.
