An early morning blaze destroys an Eaton Township home and leaves a family out in the cold. Eaton Township Fire Department responded to the North Reed home just after 4am after receiving a 911 call of a house fire. Eaton Township Fire Chief Phil Slack said the home was fully involved when Firefighters arrived on scene.

The homeowner noticed the fire just after 4am and he believes the fire started in the kitchen area. The homeowner, his girlfriend and his son all fled the home escaping injury. Because the fire was so intense they were unable to use a phone in the home sending them to a neighbors house to call 9-1-1.

Eaton Township received assistance from Columbia Township and Grafton Township Fire Departments.

The Lorain County Fire Investigators and the State Fire Marshall have been called in to investigate the cause of the blaze.
