New Lois - A compost burn sparked a house fire in Berrien County that took firefighters several hours to control.

A Ray City firefighter sent us video he took while responding to a fire off Wesley Allen Road Monday night.

They say a homeowner was burning yard debris when the wind shifted and a fire ignited in the attic.

It took firefighters from New Lois and Ray City four hours to put out.

The upper level of the home sustained significant damage.

The home was undergoing renovations and no one is currently living there.
