Deputies from the Columbiana County Sheriff's Department in the area around an early morning fire in Salem Township.

21 News saw a deputy taking pictures of the home on Lisbon Canfield Road that was gutted by flames at around 5:30 a.m. Monday.

We have reached out to the Sheriff to find out why his department is interested in the fire.

The road was shut down near Butcher Road as crews worked to control the fire.

No injuries have been reported at the home that has been vacant for about two years.

The state fire marshal has been called to find out what caused the fire.
