LUDINGTON — Electricity was the cause of a fire that destroyed a Foster Street house on Jan. 17, according to Ludington Fire Chief Jerry Funk. Funk said a Michigan State Police fire marshal recently inspected the house at 815 E. Foster St. and determined that the fire origin was electrical, starting in the southeast corner of the house’s basement.

Ludington Fire Department was called to the house, owned by Mark and Diana Johnson, about 11:30 p.m. on Jan. 17.


Also responding to the scene were Pere Marquette Twp. Fire Dept., Life EMS, and Mason County Sheriff’s Office deputies. American Red Cross was also called to assist the Johnsons.

Firefighters remained on scene until 4;10 a.m.
