Two-alarm fire destroys Mecca home
Investigators are looking for the cause of a two-alarm fire that destroyed a home and shut down a road in Trumbull County early Tuesday.
Dispatchers were told that the fire broke out in a garage attached to a house at around 3:15 a.m. on the 4900 block of State Route 46 between Liberty Boulevard and McCleary Jacoby Road.
Route 46 is closed in the area.
Fire departments were dispatched from six communities.
The first firefighter to arrive reported that flames had spread to the home which had been evacuated.
About a half hour after arriving, a second alarm went out, calling for a response from five other fire departments. Flames were reported through the roof.
Fire officials say the home is a total loss. Two people and two dogs escaped from the home.
The Red Cross has been contacted to help the family.
Fire departments from Mecca, Bazetta, Cortland, Bristol, Greene, Johnston, Burghill, Fowler, Gustavus, and Howland were dispatched.
