Fire damages Troy home


TROY — A Friday morning house fire left significant damage to a South Walnut Street home.

Troy Fire Department was dispatched to a home in the 1000 block of South Walnut Street just before 10 a.m. on a report of smoke coming from the roof area.

First units on the scene reported smoke coming from the eves around the roof area of the two-story frame home. A second alarm was called for, along with mutual aid from both the Casstown Fire Department and Tipp City Fire Department.

Flames could be seen coming from the attic area as firefighters worked to isolate the fire. A metal roof on the home made accessing the fire from the outside more difficult.

The blaze was brought under control in about an hour.

Both Casstown and Tipp City fire units were released from the scene around 12:15 p.m.

All Troy fire units cleared the scene shortly after 1 p.m.

Assistant Chief Eric Krites said there were no injuries to either occupants or firefighters.

Krites said the American Red Cross was contacted to assist two residents, one from an upstairs and one from a downstairs apartment.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No dollar loss has been set.
