Officials: Fireworks spark blaze in vacant home

TROTWOOD, Ohio (AP) — Fire officials in Ohio say fireworks sparked the flames that started a fire at a vacant house in a Dayton suburb.

WDTN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/14uWSxV ) the blaze started at about 1 a.m. Friday in Trotwood.

Trotwood Chief Brandon Barnett tells the station the second floor had collapsed by the time firefighters were on the scene. No injuries were reported.

A neighbor says the home hasn’t been occupied for at least a year since the previous owner died.

Fire officials are working to determine whether the fire was intentionally started.

Barnett says it’s the city’s first fire related to fireworks this year.
