Two Completely Destroyed
A FIRE STARTED IN A COLUMBUS, OHIO, house early Sunday morning and spread to three others before it was knocked down. When the Columbus Fire Dept. arrived on the scene they found two single-family dwellings fully involved and the fire starting on a third home.
After knocking down the fire in the exposure, they contained the fire to the two others that were total losses. A fourth house had some minor fire damages.
WSYX-TV Ch. 6 adds:
Eight people are displaced after multiple homes caught fire early Sunday morning. Investigators are trying to figure out what started it.
Columbus Fire investigators believe the fire started after 4:00 AM at a house at 2736 Barrows Road before it spread to adjacent structures. No one was home in the house where the fire started. Two homes are a complete loss. A third home was significantly damaged and a fourth home sustained minor damage.
One family who lost their home tells ABC 6/ FOX 28 that they’re glad they got out alive. 16-year-old Lena Wilson said she woke up to the smell of smoke and an orange glow outside. "Then we heard a loud boom," she said. "And I looked out the window and saw sparks flying everywhere…."
