YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Firefighters in Youngstown were called into action this afternoon for an occupied house fire.
The call went out at 2:30 p.m. for a house on Alameda Avenue on the north side of town just south of Crandall Park.
The homeowner called police claiming there was “fire in the walls.”
When crews arrived, they saw smoke pouring out of the second floor and quickly extinguished the flames.
“We believe the fire started in a bedroom and extended up an exterior wall. Right now the cause is under investigation,” Youngstown Fire Dept. Battalion Chief Terrence Jordon said.
Everyone living in the house got out safely, and there were no injuries reported.
