Fireworks spark blaze


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A family on Youngstown’s South Side escaped injury early Tuesday morning after someone set off fireworks from inside the home.

Crews were called just after 1 a.m. to the 100 block of Breaden Street after a fire broke out at the house.

Firefighters said someone started setting off fireworks from the top floor of the house, hitting a bale of hay in the backyard, which sparked a blaze. The fire spread to the siding of the house and the back porch.

The house sustained minor damage.
