Lorain – Lorain Firefighters returned to 1011 East 33rd Street this morning to fight a fire at the same house they fought a blaze at on Friday night.

Neighbors said they first noticed the light smoke filling the neighborhood, one said it looked like fog filling the area. “I live behind the house on the next street and we ran over here when we realized that it was a fire. We called 9-1-1 right away when we saw the flames shooting up the front of the house.”

Although the home had been boarded up after the last fire, neighbors say that the boards covering the back door had been forcibly removed.

When Firefighters arrived they found the front of the home fully involed. They were able to extinguish the blaze quickly and worked to check for extensions and perform overhaul of the home.

Firefighters from surrounding communities responded to the same home Friday night around 10pm to battle a fire while other Firefighters worked to extinguish the blaze at Freddy’s Auto on East 28th and Denver. The Friday fire was listed as suspicious and today’s will likely be deemed the same.

Okay, not like it's never happened before but, come on. I'm glad I don't live in Lorain. This is probably the fourth fire or so in a couple months that they've lost, only by their own fault. If the fire started Friday and was "put out" don't they do a little thing called overhaul? I guess it's better that it took a couple days to lose the house instead of their normal couple hours it usually takes them to burn the place down.

Look at these guys! The biggest (union)fire department in our county, fighting fire after fire with absolutely zero drama toward other departments! Very commendable Lorain Fire. Keep up the good work! Maybe you could teach some things to these other cities!

To the person with the first post..Did you happen to actually READ the article?

"Although the home had been boarded up after the last fire, neighbors say that the boards covering the back door had been forcibly removed."

Sounds like arson to me. Not a lack of overhaul.
