SOUTH BEND -

South Bend Firefighters responded to an early evening house fire on the 600 block of Bronson St.

Crews were called out around 5:30 p.m. and traffic in the Monroe Park area at Lincoln Way E was momentarily detoured.

The cause of the blaze is under investigation and the house is considered a total loss.
