GREEN TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Crews worked to contain a fire at the house of one their own on Tuesday.

Crews were called just before 9 a.m. to a house on Unity Road. Green Township Fire Chief Todd Baird said one of his firefighters lives there.

The fire was contained to an upstairs bedroom.

The owner of the house is a volunteer firefighter for Green Township and a full-time East Liverpool firefighter. He was taken to the hospital with smoke inhalation and is expected to be OK.

“In the daytime, we have very limited people so we had three departments coming along with us to help extinguish the fire because it’s a lot of manpower,” Baird said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
