Lumber company catches fire again

Posted: Updated:

HUBBARD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - An initial look into what caused a business to catch fire again less than 24 hours after firefighters extinguished the first fire has lead investigators to believe the two calls are separate, but possibly related, incidents.

Crews with the Hubbard Eagle Joint Fire District were called to Babcock Lumber Saturday morning for the second day in a row for a report that the fire they fought the morning before had rekindled.

Fire investigators tell 21 News that is not the case, however. They say the fire Friday morning, which forced an evacuation of the building shortly before 10 a.m., was completely extinguished by crews and Saturday morning's fire may have been caused independently of the first fire.

At 4:17 Saturday morning, a township police officer called in that the Babcock building, 6472 Mt. Everett, was showing flames and the roof appeared ready to collapse.

Fire crews were dispatched for a rekindle at that time and the first unit on scene reported the building was fully involved at 4:28 a.m.

Coitsville, Brookfield and Liberty fire departments provided mutual aid for Hubbard as well as crews from the Youngstown Air Base. Pennsylvania fire crews from West Middlesex and Shenango Township also responded.

Invesitgators are still trying to determine an exact cause for the fire Saturday.
