Fire shuts down Youngstown street

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A street on Youngstown's East Side was shut down early Wednesday while crews battled a house fire.

Firefighters called to the 1100 block of Stiles Avenue at around 3:30 am found flames pouring from the home.

The home was destroyed, so crews worked to keep the flames from spreading to a neighboring home.

Stiles Avenue is shut down between McGuffey Road and Kimmel Street until the fire can be brought under control.

There is no word on whether or not the home was occupied, or if there were any injuries.
