Call Time: 3:34 a.m. Sunday June 28, 2009
Elyria – A fire that struck a 4th Street Triplex in Elyria early Sunday morning is being called “suspicious” by fire officials.

Captain Joseph Pronesti of the Elyria Fire Department said that the top floor was fully involved when Firefighters arrived on scene. “There was heavy fire on the third floor and on the stairwell. The third floor is basically a kitchen and two rooms and they were fully involved upon arrival. We only had an Engine and Ladder in service so they went defensive and knocked down a bulk of the fire from the outside.”

Witnesses said that the flames could be seen two blocks away on West Ave.

Along with Elyria Firefighters that were called in, Lorain and Carlisle Township Firefighters were also called to the scene. Lorain was canceled before making it to the scene and Carlisle was released shortly after arriving on the scene.

Fire investigators were on scene sifting through the ruins to discover the cause of the blaze. Pronesti said that at this point it is being considered suspicious.

There were no injuries reported.
