Fire Marshal investigating Newton Twp. business fire
The State Fire Marshal is looking for the cause of a fire that heavily damaged the inside of a Newton Township business.
The 3800 block of Newton Falls Bailey Road was blocked by police while firefighters from nearly a dozen fire departments in Trumbull and Portage Counties battled flames at American Molded Plastics.
The first responder from the Newton Falls Fire District reported smoke coming from the eaves on the west side of the one-and-a-half-story building at around 4 p.m. Monday.
No one was inside the building when the fire broke out and no injuries were reported.
Photos provided by the Braceville Fire Department showed the extent of the damage inside the building including melted and burned equipment.
