CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) – Firefighters in Campbell, with some help, dealt with a house fire for most of the night.

The first firefighters that arrived at the house on Hyatt Avenue found it full of flames just after 1:30 a.m.

It took firefighters over an hour to get into the house because it was too dangerous. One firefighter had to use an ax to get inside.

Around 7 a.m., the fire rekindled and crews returned.

The woman who lives in the home was not there at the time, according to the fire chief.

Campbell was assisted by the Struthers and Coitsville Fire departments to put out the flames.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
