Carlisle Township – An early morning fire Thursday sent a family running for safety from their Oakwood Street home in Carlisle Township.

Chief Kevin Dembiec of the Carlisle Township Fire Department said that three adults, two kids and several family pets were in the home when the fire broke out. “Something woke them up and they were able to get everybody together and out of the house safely. Right now they are staying across the street at a neighbor’s home.” Dembiec said all but one kitten is accounted for and is calling the kitten missing in action at this point.

Carlisle Firefighters made a quick attack on the blaze that was shooting out of the front of the home when they pulled up on scene. “Our guys were able to get the fire under control quickly and then completely knocked down shortly after.”

Dembiec said that Fire Investigators will be at the home at first light to search for the cause of the fire.

Mutual aid was provided by Elyria, Eaton Township and Oberlin at the scene. LaGrange Township covered the Carlisle Fire Station during the fire.

No injuries were reported.
