Firefighters from several communities battled flames at a house in southwestern Mahoning County early Thursday.

Smoke was reported coming from a home along Diagonal Road and South Duck Creek Road in Goshen Township shortly after 7:30 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, the flames had spread through the entire first floor.

It isn’t believed that anyone was at the home when the fire broke out at the house just northwest of Salem.

Investigators are looking for what caused the fire.
