Carlisle Township – Two Lorain County Deputies checking on an alarm at Ron’s Transmission on Oberlin-Elyria Road in Carlisle Township early Saturday morning might just have saved the building from being engulfed in flames.

When Deputies arrived they began checking to see if the building was secure, not knowing that inside there was a fire burning. While checking they smelled smoke and then spotted the smoke coming from the roof area. Deputies quickly had Carlisle Township Firefighters dispatched to the scene.

As part of an automatic mutual aid system, Carlisle also had Firefighters responding from Oberlin and LaGrange.

When Firefighters arrived they found fire breaking through the roof towards the center of the building. Additional Departments were requested at that time to set up a water shuttle and to cover the Carlisle Station.

Firefighters entered the structure and within 30 minutes brought the blaze under control and knocked it down.

Officials at the scene say that the fire started near the furnace in the building but said it is still too early to say what sparked the fire. Officials do not believe foul play was involved in the fire.

Additional mutual aid was provided by Eaton Township and Elyria Township at the scene with Elyria sending an Engine to cover the Carlisle Fire Station.
