CAMPBELL, Ohio (WKBN) — Multiple fire departments were busy Monday night fighting a fire that caused two homes to be evacuated.
Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Monday, Campbell firefighters were called to the 100 block of Jean Street for a fire in an apartment. The Struthers Fire Department was also there to help.
Upon arrival, crews found a fire that had started on the first floor of the building. No one was home at the time, but the space has been deemed unlivable for now, according to firefighters at the scene.
A next-door neighbor had to be evacuated for safety reasons.
Police said a man was arrested after attempting to interfere with emergency personnel. A police report said he kept walking in front of firefighters who were performing their duties and he was asked several times to stay away from the area.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
