Fire damages Austintown home

Posted: Updated:

AUSTINTOWN, Ohio - Crews battled a house fire in Austintown Friday afternoon that spread from a kitchen to the attic.

Two people were inside the house on New Road when fire broke out shortly before 3 p.m.

Both got out safely, but the township fire chief said there is some structural damage to the house.

The chief said fires at that time of the afternoon are particularly challenging because many part time firefighters are at other jobs and are difficult to reach for assistance.
