AKRON, OH (WOIO) – Firefighters say multiple people have died in a fire at a northeast Ohio home.
The fire was reported at approximately 2:45 a.m. at a home located in the 600 block of Fultz Street.
According to CBS affiliate WOIO in Cleveland, a resident on Fultz Street called 911 to report the fire.
Lieutenant Sierjie Lash, with the Akron Fire Department, told WOIO that firefighters arrived to find an intense, fully-involved house fire. The home is structurally unsafe, so crews have not been able to completely enter the home to investigate.
A neighboring house was also damaged by the heat from the flames.
Neighbors told officials that there are multiple family members that live inside the house.
