Authorities say two officers with the Porter County Sheriffs Police Department were among three people taken to area hospitals this morning after a fiery incident near Hebron. Police say a 48-year-old Hobart firefighter on leave after police allege he threatened his wife with a gun last month allegedly drove his van into their Hebron-area home this morning, and crews responded to put out fire that broke out involving the vehicle and the house. Multiple departments responded. Police say John Wall was taken by ambulance to a local hospital with severe burns to his face and hands. Porter County Sheriffs Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Larry LaFlower says the two officers transported to an area hospital were inside the house investigating a battery complaint and taking a report when the incident occurred. No information was available at this time on the officers' conditions. There are no reports of injuries to the man's wife.
