LORAIN HOUSE FIRE

A fire in Lorain Monday afternoon destroys a Talbot Street home leaving a man and his four children looking for a place to stay.

Lorain Firefighters responded to the call Monday afternoon and found flames shooting from the windows. Assistant Fire Chief Gary Burls of the Lorain Fire Department: “When Pumper 3 arrived they found the house fully involved and they advanced a hand line and got in under control pretty quick then the other trucks came in and help knock it down.”

Chief Burls said he had a brief conversation with the homeowner and learned that the man lives in the home with his four children. “All of the kids were in school at the time of the fire and he had actually just left to go pick one of them up from school.”

There is no damage estimate at this time, only that the entire house was affected except for one bedroom area. There were no injuries reported.

The Lorain Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau is investigating the cause of the blaze.
