Sheffield Township – A family of four was forced out into the cold Monday afternoon after a fire broke out in their Sheffield Township apartment.

Chief Joseph Bandagski of the Sheffield Township Fire Department said that the blaze was brought under control in a short amount of time. “When we arrived we found the first floor pretty well involved, our guys were able to get that knocked down pretty fast however. The ground floor of the apartment is completely totaled and the upstairs portion of the home has received significant smoke damage.”

Chief Bandagski said that at the time the fire broke out a mother and her four children were at home, all escaped without injury. “They were able to get out of the apartment quickly and with no injuries. We have the Red Cross coming to assist them with getting a place to stay and clothing if needed.”

The two units surrounding the fire apartment suffered smoke damage but no fire damage.

Firefighters from Sheffield Village and Elyria Township assisted Sheffield Township in battling the blaze.
