Crews from surrounding communities were called out to battle flames on property along Tippecanoe Road in Canfield.

Dispatchers were told that fire broke out in a garage at an address on the 7900 block of Tippy shortly before 8 a.m. Monday.

People evacuated the home as fire crews were on their way

The first firefighters to arrive found smoke coming from a roof.  Fire damage was also reported in the kitchen.

Tippecanoe Road was closed between Western Reserve Road and Leffingwell Road so firefighters could stretch hoses across the road.

One lane of the road was reopened at 8:30 a.m.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
