Three people came home Tuesday night to find their house on fire

HOWLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Three people came home late Tuesday night to find their house on fire.

The home on Athens Drive SE in Howland went up in flames just before 10 p.m.

Fire officials said nobody was home at the time, but they did rescue a cat from the burning building.

The fire remained in the front of the house, but it did cause a lot of smoke and heat damage. Fire officials think the home can be saved, though.

The American Red Cross was called to help the family find somewhere to stay.

The state fire marshal’s office has been contacted to help investigate what started the fire.
