AUBURN — A fire that heavily damaged a rural Auburn home Monday morning flared up again early Tuesday, Auburn Fire Chief Michael VanZile said.

Auburn firefighters returned to 4437 S.R. 8 east of Auburn for an alarm at 3:23 a.m. Tuesday. A small fire had ignited in an upstairs bedroom of the house.

Butler and Garrett fire departments joined Auburn firefighters at the scene Tuesday, VanZile said.

The original fire in the house was reported Monday at 7:27 a.m. Firefighters arrived to find a two-story house with heavy fire coming from the second floor and the rear of the home, owned by Nicole Miller.

The home and its contents were heavily damaged by Monday’s fire, VanZile said. The cause of the fire is being investigated by the Auburn Fire Department.
