ROSSFORD – A home is being considered a total loss following a fire Sunday in the city.
The cause of the blaze is undetermined.
Rossford Fire and Rescue was called to 149 Oak St. at 8:07 p.m. for a structure fire.
There was a five-minute delay in Rossford's response as number of 911 cell phone calls were routed to Toledo 911 by a cellular tower, and Toledo Fire dispatched an alarm assignment to 149 Oak St. in Toledo.
Shortly thereafter, other 911 calls were made and the fire was discovered to be in Rossford.
The home was completely destroyed and a nearby home at 151 Oak sustained moderate damage.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, which is being headed by the State Fire Marshal's Office.
A dog was killed in the fire, and one Rossford firefighter was treated and released from St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center, Toledo, due to first-degree burns on the shoulder and neck area.
Rossford received automatic aid from Perrysburg Township and Northwood fire departments.
Damage is estimated at $150,000.
Crews remained on-scene until approximately 6 a.m. Monday.
