YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Youngstown Fire Department investigators were on the scene of a house fire on Youngstown’s east side Sunday night.

Firefighters were called to the house in the 1500 block of McGuffey Road at approximately 11 p.m.

Youngstown Fire Department Capt. John Casey said crews and witnesses are giving fire investigators clues as to how the fire started.

“The first company on-scene discovered heavy fire in the back of the house,” Casey said. “A couple of occupants saying they heard possibly a window break.”

Casey said the homeowners and four teenagers made it out of the fire uninjured.
