Investigators say they'll return to a 141-year-old home in Boardman to look for the cause of a fire that broke out there early Monday.

Township Fire Chief Mark Pitzer tells 21 News that family members were awakened by the sound of smoke detectors just after 2 a.m. after flames broke out on the front porch.

When township firefighters arrived they saw flames at the home on the 8100 block of Tippecanoe Road.

The road was shut down while crews from Boardman were joined by the Canfield Fire Department in putting out the flames and searching the home to make sure no one was inside.

The firefighters faced another challenge since live power lines to the home had fallen into the front yard.

Ohio Edison was called out to turn off the electricity.

At one point, Boardman Township called out all off-duty firefighters.

Family members escaped unharmed. An ambulance was called after the fire was out to help someone at the scene with a medical emergency. Chief Pitzer says it was not related to the fire.

The American Red Cross has been contacted to provide the family with shelter, clothing and other necessities they may need.

Although a family member said that the fire may have erupted in an electrical box, the fire investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire at the home built in 1877.

Tippecanoe Road was open again to traffic between Leffingwell and West Western Reserve Roads shortly before 5 a.m.

Pitzer says an early estimate places damages at between $75,000 and $100,000.
