Crews respond to house blaze for the second time in two weeks

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) — A house on the east side of Youngstown caught fire for the second time in the past two weeks.

Youngstown firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from the house on Dryden Avenue around 2 p.m. on Sunday.

No one was home at the time, but firefighters were able to force their way into the house and put out the fire.

Even with temperatures in the single-digits, crews didn’t have much trouble with water or the cold.

“We’ve got a good water supply here. We were fortunate today, we didn’t have any issues with water supply. We had a good hydrant, and we didn’t have any issues,” said Youngstown Fire Battalion Chief, Gary DiTullio.

The son of the family who lives in the house said they were driving back from out-of-town when the fire started.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
