The Zeigler Fire Department and the State Fire Marshal are currently investigating the cause of an early morning house fire. Firefighters were called to the house at 116 School Street around 2:40 on Saturday. There was a heavy fire in the back of the house that had spread to the rest of the home. Zeigler firefighters worked with several other fire departments to contain the fire and responders were forced to evacuate after the roof of the home started to collapse. The house did suffer major damage and no one was at home when the fire started.
