Charcoals blamed for devastating house fire

NEWARK - September 7, 2010

Flames broke out around 2:45 a.m. on the unit block of Ohio State Drive.

Numerous fire companies from the area responded to the multi-alarm blaze.

The family of four, including the family dog, was able to escape the fire without harm. However, the home was completely destroyed by the blaze, causing at least a half million dollars in damage to the house.
