LEMOYNE - A blaze on Truman Road in Troy Township heavily damaged and made unhabitable a home Tuesday. The incident was reported at 3:54 p.m. at 3315 Truman Road.
Troy Township Fire Chief Randy Wood Woodruff said that upon arrival of fire crews to the house, there were "pretty heavy" fire conditions in one room.
Pemberville-Freedom and Lake Township fire crews also responded for mutual aid.
"There's quite a bit of damage to a number of the rooms, and then there's moderate smoke and heat damage pretty much throughout the house," said Woodruff.
Woodruff said that it appears that the male homeowner was attempting to start a fire in the fireplace insert in one of the rooms, and may have been distracted by a child. He later heard the smoke detector, and saw a fire outside of the fireplace insert. At that point he collected the children and left.
The man and at least two children were reported in the house at the time.
Red Cross was contacted and did respond to offer assistance.
